Currently, if the Coronavirus is seen in the UK, it is most likely to occur in travellers that have recently returned from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, or Thailand. If you have recently returned from any of the above please DO NOT enter the surgery and return home and telephone NHS 111 to report your symptoms and travel history in order to identify any risk.
WELCOME TO CEDARS MEDICAL GROUP ONLINE
We wish to extend a warm welcome to all our patients. The practice aims are to be a people centered practice, providing quality care for our patients and a good working environment for our staff.
This surgery website is used to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you would like to comment. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
NEED TO SEE A GP ON AN EVENING OR WEEKEND?
GPs in Derwentside are working together to offer extra GP appointments from 18:00 on weekday evenings as well as Saturday and Sunday mornings. To book an 'Extended hours' appointment please contact the surgery Monday-Friday 08:30-18:00. When our surgery is closed, please call 111 to access these clinics, which are held at Tanfield View Surgery, Stanley and Queens Road Surgery, Consett.
Cedars Medical Group is a training and teaching practice which allows us to have GP Registrars who are qualified doctors wishing to train as GPs. They work closely with the partners in all aspects of patient care.
We also have 5th Year Medical Students on a 3 week rotation and 3rd Year Medical Students weekly on a Wednesday morning.
If you would prefer to see the doctor or nurse alone, please inform the receptionist at the time of your appointment and this will be arranged for you.
ONLINE REQUESTS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS AND ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS
We are now able to register patients for both of the above online services, please speak to a member of the reception team for further details. Patients must request these services in person and provide proof of identification.
NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
From 1 April 2015 all patients at Cedars Medical Group, including children, will have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. This does not, however, prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do, and you are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by our practice.
Please see our page for Young People aged 13-19, located under Further Information
