Clinical Commissioning Group
The Practice is within the area covered by Durham Dales, Easington and Sedgefield Clinical Commissioning Group (DDES CCG). The group is made up of 40 member GP practices covering a total population of around 272,000 people over a large and diverse geographical area.
Clinical commissioning means that local GPs across our localities have a greater opportunity to use their knowledge about healthcare to develop services that meet our patients' needs.

In October it was announced that the three Clinical Commissioning Groups across the Tees Valley will merge from 1st April 2020. Details can be found here.
