As a practice, unfortunately we are unable to provide exemption letters for face coverings. For more information, please click here.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer COVID antibody testing at present

As of 8th June 2020, anybody entering the surgery MUST wear a face covering such as fabric masks (these do not need to be medical grade masks) but this is essential for patient and staff safety. We need to continue to maintain social distancing in the waiting room, therefore we would ask where possible for patients to wait outside. You can inform us you have arrived via a phone call to reception.

Extended Access

Great Lumley Surgery will be the hub for Chester-Le-Street practices on a Saturday morning and Cestria Health Centre (Whitehill Way, Chester-Le-Street) will be the hub on a Sunday. Both clinics will run from 8:00am - 1:00pm.

You can book your appointment for the extended access by calling the surgery Monday - Friday between 8:00am and 6:00pm or alternatively you can call NHS 111 on the day.

Please note: We can not accept walk-in patients to these clinics due to GP indemnity.
