To reduce pressure on the local health services during the winter our Ushaw Moor site will be open on Saturday mornings from Saturday 5th October to 30th March 2014
The Surgery will be open from 8am to 1pm and will have one doctor and one nurse or one health care assistant available. The service is accessible to patients from all five of our surgery sites and should be used for urgent but non-emergency care.
