Bewick Crescent SurgeryThe Partners and staff at Bewick Crescent Surgery in Newton Aycliffe are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centered healthcare. We are also responsible for a branch surgery in Heighington village. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups. In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and feel free to leave us some feedback.
Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been told to do so by one of our staff. All patients are triaged by clinicians over the telephone in the first instance. Patients will then be assessed over the telephone and the clinician will then decide if a face-to-face appointment is necessary. For updates to our appointment model please click this link here.
