Chastleton Mission Statement
At Chastleton, our mission is to provide the highest possible standard of care to all of our patients. 

Out of Hours
If you require urgent attention or advice, telephone 111.  If possible, have a pen and paper handy.

Test Results  
Please could you telephone the surgery for your results on 0191 3846171 between 2pm and 4pm Monday to Friday.  

Named Accountable GP  
All patients now have a named accountable GP who is responsible for patients overall care at the practice.  If you wish to know who your named accountable GP is, please ask at reception.  Please note that although all patients have been allocated a named accountable GP, patients are able to see any GP they like and are not restricted to the GP they have been allocated.  

We Teach Medical Students  
We are a teaching practice for Sunderland University medical students and are proud to be involved in training tomorrow's doctors.  As a result, students may lead or observe your appointment.  If you would rather not see medical students, please inform reception.  Your care will in no way be affected by this.  

The practice boundary was redefined on the 1st of April 2004. The new boundary excludes Gilesgate Moor, Gilesgate, Carrville, Belmont,  High Shincliffe, Shincliffe, Langley Moor and Broompark.  Patients residing in these areas will not be affected by these changes unless they move to another address, which is also outside the boundary.
