New Patient Registration
Shinwell Medical Group is open to new patients at both of our sites - either in the Shinwell building in Horden, or the Peterlee Health Centre. We're delighted to welcome you if you need a doctor, and we are recognised as "Youth Friendly" by the Department of Health (this means facilities and policies which young adults find valuable such as appointments with a friend or by yourself, C-card, and so on).
When you come, it may take some time to receive your medical record, so when you come to register at the practice you will be offered an appointment to see the Practice Nurse.
A brief Health Check will be carried out. It is important to provide us with information about you and your family, so please take the time and the trouble to attend.
