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.
Yes, we encourage people to get their COVID booster BUT please don't ring the practice - we will call you!
We have multiple people who are asking BEFORE the recommended 6 months and it is causing unecessary stress all round. Please be kind to our reception staff and telephone staff as they have worked tirelessly throughout this time. Being rude to them, doesn't help anyone.
At present we are vaccinating patients who had their second vaccine in March 2021.
Housebound patients: We are currently in the process of working out a safe plan.
To help out, check out the government website to book in ONCE you have done the 6 months (190 days): Book Here
As from 19th July face masks will not be mandated.
At Eaglescliffe Medical Practice we will continue to wear PPE including masks and ask that everyone attending the practice continues to wear a mask or face covering. By doing so we are protecting you, ourselves and patients who are clinically vulnerable or unable to be vaccinated.
IF you choose not to wear a mask, please make this known when you have been given a face to face appointment as we may have to make alternative arrangements in order to protect patients and staff. This may be attending when the practice is empty or waiting outside for administrative information.
Our practice figures are showing a dramatic increase in positive COVID cases, especially in the younger age groups with some been double vaccinated. Please remember we also have patients in vulnerable and older age groups with medical needs coming into the practice.
Thank you for your ongoing support - by taking these precautions we are able to remain open to provide healthcare to our patients without risk of infection.
