  • Practice Announcement



Our Practice is highly patient focused and we have a multidisciplinary approach to patients’ health care. We aim to deliver the best for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with those of other health and social care workers in the community.

We provide modern health care facilities and aim to continually improve the health of our patients.

The practice traces its origins to the first Doctor Sacco in Crawcrook during the First World War. His son Frank joined him after the Second World War, and was a founding member of the practice until his retirement in 1979. The practice moved into new purpose built premises in Back Chamberlain Street in 1985 and subsequently to our new premises which opened in 2011.
