Welcome to New Seaham Medical Group

Our surgery website is a way of presenting to all our patients an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments & details that are relevant to the practice & our patients.

As well as a source of information about our Practice, the staff & the services we provide, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.
Have a look around our website and please do send us some feedback. We can use your thoughts to improve our online services & further develop the website to make it a more useful, practical application for our patients.

All GP practices have been asked to prepare to deploy staff into hospitals and urgent care services to support the whole NHS through the COVID-19 crisis.

We ask all our patients to support us and other services during this difficult time.

Please:

  • DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY – this is a danger to you, to our staff and to the patients who really do need to be seen.  We are offering routine and urgent appointments by telephone, if required you will be asked to attend the practice.
  • If attending the Practice please wear a face mask.
  • Get an online account set up – ask the GP or nurse after your telephone consultation
  • Order your prescriptions online or over the phone NOT IN PERSON.
  • Do not ask for extra medication – there is no need to do this. Stockpiling medicines is bad for everyone in the same way we have seen toilet paper being stockpiled.

Please be polite and understanding to everyone involved in your care – we are doing the best we can under very difficult circumstances.  Please also remember that the NHS includes all our receptionists, pharmacy staff, district and community staff, care home staff, paramedics, cleaners and all the other amazing people keeping us going.

Visit NHS.uk for the latest guidance on coronavirus COVID-19, including symptom checker, self-care and social distancing.

Refer to NHS 111 Online to check if you have coronavirus symptoms. If you have severe COVID-19 symptoms and need further advice call NHS 111 — not the surgery.

Isolation Notes are available online from NHS 111, if you are self-isolating and need a note for your employer.  Help, guidance available from our COVID-19 support page.

We thank you for your understanding and support. By working together we can save lives!
