Dipton Surgery serves the patients of Dipton and surrounding villages extending to Stanley DH9 post codes. Patients in Burnopfield with NE16 post codes are also in our catchment area.

This practice is owned by Dr Jon Levick and is part of the The Oakfields Group. The practice clinical team is led by Dr Pratim Sarkar. A female GP Dr Clare Patel joined the team at Dipton in September 2017. Nurse Practitioner and prescriber Julie Davison assists the Doctors and can assess all women’s health problems. We also provide an additional Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse, Health Care Assistant and an administration team consisting of a Manager and four receptionists.

Dipton Surgery is a new purpose built surgery which opened in February 2011 with the capacity to bring care closer to home for all of our patients.
We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics and also minor surgery. At this practice we aim to treat all our patients courteously and in complete confidence. All patients over 75 years are entitled to have a consultation every three years.
