Some minor surgery procedures are carried out at the surgery to save referral to the hospital. We have monthly cryotheraphy clinics for removal of warts etc. Referral to this clinic is by the doctor.
We have a physiotherapist attached to the Belmont Surgery, working on Monday and Tuesday mornings. Patients can also access Avenue House in Durham for specialist treatment that cannot be carried out at the practice. Referrals to the physio are done via the doctor.
The practice has counselors attached to the surgery for patients who require this service. Referral to this provision is again made via the GP.
The practice dietician works at Belmont & Sherburn surgeries once a month. Referral to this service can either be made by the doctor or the Chronic Disease management nurse.
The chiropodist holds regularly clinics at both Belmont & Sherburn surgeries. This provision is fort diabetic patients only and again referral to the service is made by the GP or chronic disease management nurse.
All of the practice services are provided on a regular basis and at both sites. We encourage all of our patients to make full use of them. We welcome any comments or suggestions on how we can improve the services we provide or if there are other services that patients would like us to consider providing at a practice base.
