UPDATE - Evenwood Branch Site of Woodview Medical Practice

The Evenwood Branch site of Woodview Medical Practice, based at Copeland Lane, Evenwood has been temporarily closed since mid-March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will close permanently effective from 1st July 2022.

Further to our letter dated 1st December 2021 our application to NHS County Durham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to close our Evenwood Branch Site was submitted, and has now been approved. We carried out a 12 week consultation from 1st December 2021 to 23rd February 2022 with patients and stakeholders which included our Patient Participation Group, local practices and local Councillors. The feedback was reviewed and submitted along with our application. Prior to the pandemic demand at the site had been low and we believe that in closing the site we are able to enhance clinical quality and practice resilience, run efficiently, and to continue to deliver high quality of care to patients.

Patients will be able to access all services at our main site in Cockfield. Your registration will not be affected, and you don't need to do anything
