Welcome to Eaglescliffe Medical Practice
Welcome to our surgery website. We hope to use this site as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments and details that are relevant to the practice and our patients.
As well as a source of information about our Practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information.
About the Practice
Eaglescliffe Medical Practice was started in 1971 by Dr T. O' Callaghan and has grown to look after over 10,000 patients from Eaglescliffe, Yarm and surrounding areas. We try to combine efficiency with friendliness in looking after our patients. We aim to provide a high standard of preventative care and advice whilst encouraging healthy lifestyle without undue medical interference.
The Health Centre
This is a purpose built, fully accessible building, opened in 2009, with car parking on site. We share the centre with other health personnel employed by Hartlepool and Stockton-On-Tees CCG, many of whom are involved in nursing and health promotion.
Dear Patients and Friends,
It has been an unprecedented year at Eaglescliffe Medical Practice and as a consequence few of you will know that I plan to leave the Partnership at Eaglescliffe after nearly 25 years at the end of June. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Partner at Eaglescliffe, delivering and improving the services we are able to offer for the people of Eaglescliffe. It has however reached the time when I want to spend more of my time with family and to relax a little. I am not retiring entirely from Medicine as I will continue to support the GPs in the Tees Valley through my work with the GP Federation and the National Vaccination Campaign where I have been the Senior Medical Lead since November.
I will clearly miss my regular contact with you all but am happy to welcome Dr David Hindmarsh to the practice who starts in with the practice in August. I hope you will welcome him in just the same friendly way you did me 25 years ago
Best wishes to you all,
