Welcome to Sacriston Surgery

The doctors, nurses and staff at Sacriston Surgery are here to promote health and learning, and we are proud to offer the highest possible standards of patient-centred healthcare.

We offer a full General Practice Service and run Specialist Clinics for children and pregnant women, Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Asthma sufferers and for patients needing minor surgery.

At Sacriston Surgery, we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the “Further Information” menu. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Home Visits

The surgery is the best place for us to see our patients, however we do acknowledge that we may need to see you in your own home if you are housebound. 

All requests for home visits will be assessed by the GP. The surgery allocates time for home visits each day and we ask that any home visit requests are made before 11:00am.

Home visits usually take place between the hours of 12:00pm and 2:00pm, however if you feel it is urgent and cannot wait until the next day, please contact the surgery to speak to a member of our reception team. 

When the surgery is closed, home visits are provided by Durham and Chester le Street Primary Care Trust at the Out of Hours Centre which is based at University Hospital of North Durham.
