Sensier HouseSt Andrew's LaneSpennymoor, DL16 6QATel: 01388 817777
The area served by the combined practice covers Spennymoor area including the surrounding villages of Kirk Merrington, Hett, Byers Green, Newfield, Binchester and Croxdale.
We will register new patients resident within the area defined above. We also take patients who live to the west of the A167 in Ferryhill (Dean Bank Area).
To join the practice come to reception and ask to be added to the practice list. Please bring your NHS card if you have one. You will be asked for your date of birth and to complete forms that will give us essential information while your records are being transferred from your previous health service provider.
You will be offered a "new patient" registration medical appointment with one of the Healthcare Assistants.
NOTE: If you have repeat medication at your current practice, please make an appointment to see an Advanced Nurse Practitioner or Doctor for a medication review. As St Andrew’s has clinical responsibility for any medication issued to our patients, we must carry out a medication review before issuing any repeats.
You will be registered with a named GP, but you have the freedom to choose which GP you would like to see. Simply make known your preference at the time of making an appointment.
The Practice does not offer on-line registration. However, you can download the registration pack and the Family Doctor Registration form (GSM1) and take the completed forms into the Practice.
Both forms must be completed by each family member 16 and over.

New Patient Registration Pack
As part of the commitment to more personalised care for patients, Practices are required to allocate a named GP to all patients. The named GP will have overall responsibility for their your care and support, with lead responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services.
Where a patient expresses a preference to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a named GP does not prevent you from seeing any other Doctor in the Practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and there may be times when you need to consult with other medical professionals in the practice, which you are free to do at any time.
