Langbaurgh NHS Medical Centre, a GP and nurse-led health service based in the Redcar Primary Care Hospital on West Dyke Road is due to relocate later next month.

The service, which is provided by Assura Stockton, is moving to the state-of-the-art Coatham Health Village on Coatham Road on Monday 20 February 2012. It will join existing services including the Coatham Road Surgery which moved into the health village recently.

Patients will still be able to see a nurse or doctor without an appointment from 8am to 7pm weekdays and from 1.15pm to 5pm at weekends. Unregistered patients may book same day emergency appointments if they are unable to make an appointment with their own GP and new patients are welcome to register if they wish to.

As well as increasing access to GP services, the Langbaurgh NHS Medical Centre provides patients with greater choice to receive advice and treatment for a wide range of minor injuries and illnesses.

The move has long been planned. Ever since it opened in late 2009 the Redcar Primary Care Hospital was a temporary located until a new permanent location became available in the purpose built Coatham Health Village.

Dr Mark Hulyer, a local GP and chair of Assura Stockton, said: “We are delighted to be moving into the state-of-the-art Coatham Health Village on West Dyke Road. The Redcar Primary Care Hospital has always been a temporary location for us and we are looking forward to moving to our new home next month.

“Langbaurgh NHS Medical Centre offers patients high quality, easy and convenient access to a GP or nurse when they need it from 8am to 7pm during the week and from 1.15pm to 5pm at weekends. We also offer emergency appointments to unregistered patients who are unable to get an appointment with their own GP and are open to new patients wishing to register with us.”
