Annual Report 2018

This is now available for you to read in the survey section of the website.




From 1st April 2017 the existing Walk-in Centres in North Ormesby and Eston will be replaced by four GP centres based in North Ormesby Health Village, One Life Centre in Linthorpe (now Bluebell Medical Centre), Redcar Primary Care Hospital and East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton. These centres will be open from 6pm to 9.30pm - Monday to Friday - and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.


To help improve patient waiting times the centres will operate an appointment based system - you won’t be able to simply walk-in.

STAR Service

Many Thanks.


doctor_examining_childDon’t forget that the Practice Nurses can deal with many problems without recourse to the doctor.  You are encouraged to make an appointment to see the nurse for many aspects of health advice. 

Our Nurses deal with pre-travel and ‘flu immunisation, blood tests, injections, dressings, wound care.  The Nurses also run clinics looking after diabetes, asthma, blood pressure, cervical smear tests etc and are able to give expert dietary, contraceptive and lifestyle advice. 

Other Services 

ECG facilities, minor surgical procedures, including freezing warts with liquid nitrogen. 

District Nurses 

Our Community Nurses offer a complete range of nursing services within the home setting.

Health Visitors 

The Health Visitors provide a full-time service, mainly to under fives.  They are notified of all new births and will visit mothers at home after the midwife has completed her care.  If you have a problem and need to contact the Health Visitor speak to reception who will advise you of a contact number. 

Maternity Care 

pregnant8All the partners provide a full maternity service in conjunction with the Midwife.  Full ante-natal and post-natal care is given and all arrangements for your confinement will be made

Please talk to us beforehand if you are thinking about a future pregnancy, as there are several positive things you can do to increase your chances of a healthy baby. 


Hospital appointments are sometimes wasted because we and/or the Hospital Records Department have not been informed of a change of address or telephone number. 

Please tell us if you have changed your address or telephone number!

Waiting times vary tremendously, but you should be notified of your appointment fairly soon after your GP has made the referral.  If not, do check with us.
