Latest information about Coronavirus vaccine 

Unfortunately the delivery of vaccines to our site has been slower than we expected. However, we have continued to vaccinate patients, using all vaccine within one week of receipt. 
Last Saturday our staff worked on their day off to vaccinate patients and staff in care homes and we will be finishing our care home programme by working again this coming weekend. 
In addition, there are clinics planned throughout the week, as we continue to work our way through the priority list. 
As and when we receive more vaccine, we will do our upmost to vaccinate patients as swiftly as possible and according to the clinical priorities set by the Joint Committee of Vaccinations and Immunisations.
We apologise in advance that patients may be invited at short notice; this is due to the short notice we receive.
Regrettably, because we do not know when we will receive vaccine, or how many vaccines we will receive, we are unable to tell individuals when they will be vaccinated.
As we must prioritise the Covid vaccination programme, we are unable to provide frequent updates but we do our best to update the website news whenever we have an opportunity to do so. 
We have over 9000 patients and this programme will take many months to complete.
Please do not call us for updates, as this distracts our staff from other important work. 
It is the desire of all our staff to vaccinate as many patients as possible, as quickly as we can. In the mean time, please follow the rules and stay safe.

National lockdown - with effect from 6/1/21

Whilst your GP surgery is still open, you must follow the advice to stay at home and only come to the surgery if we ask you to (e.g. to attend a booked appointment). Please DO NOT come to the surgery for any other reason. If you need medical help or advice, please telephone us on 01642 475157. 

New Salaried GP

We are delighted to announce that Dr Nicola Hall will be joining us on 4/1/2021, in the capacity of Salaried GP. Dr Hall is an experienced GP who will be working here three days/week. I am sure you will all join us in welcoming her to the practice.

Coronavirus advice and guidance

Flu vaccination campaign 

Towards the end of September, the practice will invite eligible patients for a flu vaccination by text message or email (in rare cases, where this is not possible, we will telephone or write to you). Please ensure we have your current contact information. 

This year, there is a new cohort of patients who are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination. These patients are aged 50-64 years. 

Please note that people in the 50-64-year old age group will not be vaccinated until November and December, providing there is sufficient vaccine, and no appointments will be offered for

this age group until then. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first.  If you are 50-64 and you are in one of the other groups which is eligible for the flu vaccination,

for example you have a health condition which puts you at risk from the flu, you will be invited earlier.

Face coverings must be worn please

With effect from Monday 15/6/20, all people entering Redcar hospital are required to wear their own face covering. Please ensure you fit your face covering before entering the building and leave it on until you are safely outside. 

The practice went live with E-consult on 28/4/20.

Please see the home page on our website to access this service, which allows you to consult with a GP electronically. 


As you may have heard in the media, GP practices will soon deliver the Covid Vaccination programme. We will do this in partnership with other local practices. The Government has published the order in which patients must be invited. This is based on clinical need and the link is below. We will invite patients as we work through each of the priority groups. Please do not telephone us, we will contact you.


This, together with an increased flu campaign places unprecedented pressure on our service. Please be patient and bear with us. We are fully committed to delivering this important programme to patients as swiftly as possible, whilst also maintaining as many normal GP services as possible.

Sickness absence self certification form

GP surgeries have also been asked to consult with patients by telephone, rather than face to face. This measure protects our staff and patients. We will implement this change from Monday 16/3/20. Please rest assured that all our team here at The Green House are working extremely hard to implement measures to ensure we continue to provide a high standard of care to all our patients. There is no cause for alarm or panic, we have good contingency plans to ensure the continuity of your GP healthcare service. We ask for your patience and support at this challenging time for the NHS.

With effect from 19/3/20, as a result of demand on our service, we are increasing our turnaround time for repeat prescriptions to 72 hours. 

Please follow us on Facebook for regular updates on the changes to our services as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
