Outcome of Public Engagement

New Seaham Medical Group recently applied to NHS England and the CCG to move all current services that we offer to the Eastlea branch of the surgery and stop all services at the Harbour site.

We would like to announce that this application was successful and we have been given permission to make the changes. We plan to do this as soon as possible and would like to have the move concluded in May this year.

We will stop offering services from Seaham Primary Care Centre after the 28th of June.

Until the then all services will be the same at both sites as they are now.

Thank you to everyone who engaged in the process and gave us feedback or attended the meetings, your input was invaluable to us. We look forward to your continued support in the future as we develop and grow the Eastlea site.

Patients across Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield have been reminded to ‘Talk Before You Walk’ when in need of care when their GP practice is closed.

By phoning NHS 111, patients who need to be seen urgently on the same day will be offered an appointment with a healthcare professional either at their own GP surgery or at another surgery nearby called a Primary Care Service or a hub.

Primary Care Services are available across the area.
