Peterlee is a 4 surgery practice. We have been rebranded so all surgeries have a fresh look. Two surgeries are of large size and we have two on the smaller size. We are on the first floor and all rooms have large windows bringing in lots of natural light - We have two Belmont chairs, one Castellani chair and one Clesta, although the chairs are not new they are all in good working order and well maintained. Three have been recently recovered to meet brand.
Although we do not have digital x-ray all four surgeries had new x-ray units fitted in June 2015. We also have a central x-ray room that has a standard x-ray machine, OPG machine and large developer.
The team at Peterlee are well established with a mixture of staff that has been at the practice for over 40 Years to our most recent Apprentice Position of only 2 months. The team have a good relationship in and out of practice - we have 6 qualified nurses, one Trainee nurse and one apprentice Nurse.
Private potential is good we offer DOC at the practice and this is very popular. We also have a Hygienist 1 day per week at the practice that offers direct access and also takes referrals from the clinicians.
We are located on the first floor in a town centre square. We have many shops/cafes/banks and other amenities in the same square. Due to the location there are many car parks around the centre. Some are on a 3 hour stay but staff are allowed to log there registration and park all day on the days of work.
Peterlee is a busy small town centre with great transport links larger towns such as Durham, Newcastle, and Sunderland. It has good restaurants and lovely natural areas to work. Peterlee is also only 5 mile from the coast and has some really good beaches. We have really nice patients who have been with us for many years. We work very well as a team and are happy to support new people into our practice.
