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.
Dear Patients and Colleagues,
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Dr Dave Hindmarsh and I am one of the new partners and I am set to start in August. I have spent the past 11 years in the Army and leaving so that I can spend more time with my family. I have just finished as the Medical Officer with The Light Dragoons' in Catterick. I was lucky enough to help them deploy out to Mali during my final year.
I live locally with my wife Sophie and our two children Patrick and Josephine. We moved to the area four years ago and love the area. So much so that my parents moved up as well! We love getting out and about in the local area with our dog, Daring, and going to anything train related.
I am really excited to join the practice and it sets to be a new chapter and I look forward to working with you all.
Dr David Hindmarsh
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.
