Patients urged: "Talk Before You Walk" when your GP Practice is closed:

Patients across Durham Dales, Easington & Sedgefield have been reminded to "Talk Before You Walk" when in need of care when their own GP Practice is Closed.  By phoning NHS111, patients who need to be seen by a Primary Health Care Professional  urgently on the same day, will be offered an appointment at a Primary Care Service or 'Hub'. The Hub could be located at a GP Practice within the Durham Dales area or in another local community setting.  The NHS111 service personnel will be able to give you further information at the time of booking your appointment.
