About Us


At Blacketts Medical Practice we have a friendly and dedicated team of Doctors, Nurses and Admin staff.

The Practice was formed over 100 years ago, previously been located at Netherlaw Surgery in Stanhope Road, Darlington. Blacketts Medical Practice stands proud on Bondgate in Darlington. The Practice aims to provide the best quality care for the local community.

All patients registered with Blacketts Medical Practice are allocated a named GP who has overall responsibility for the care and support provided to you by the practice. You can still access care from any member of our clinical team and this does not prevent you from seeing other doctors in the practice. If you wish to know who your named GP is please ask one of the reception staff when you are next in the surgery.

We offer convenient free on-site parking available for patients or pharmacy users but spaces are limited so we cannot guarantee you a parking space however there are other parking facilities located nearby the Practice.
