Our Appointment System
Online appointment booking is currently unavailable, as we need to screen all our patients for covid symptoms prior to booking face to face appointments. In order to book an appointment please ring Reception on 01325 465285
- Patients are free to express a preference to see a doctor or nurse of their choice for routine appointments at the surgery.
- All routine GP appointments are 10 minutes
- Let us know if more than one person in the family needs to be seen. We can give you a longer appointment if necessary.
Patients can download the NHS App which is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS Services on your smartphone or tablet.
Or patients can contact the practice to register for SystmOnline.
You can also use eConsult to contact your doctor online.
If you feel that you need to be seen the same day, you will be - but not always by the doctor of your choice.
Named Accountable GP
You may be aware that all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.
The GP you have been allocated is the GP you are registered with.
This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
Alternatively you can discuss it with your clinician at your next visit.
Evenings and Weekends
For urgent advice and treatment when our practice is closed call 111. Primary HealthCare Darlington offer both evening and weekend appointments for all Darlington GP surgeries. You can make an appointment through reception or by ringing 111.
Your local pharmacist will be able to give you free health advice and you don’t need an appointment. Many pharmacies operate extended hours on a rota basis.

Darlington Memorial Hospital
Specialist and hospital care
If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will ask you where and when you would like to go. They can then book your appointment electronically while you wait.
