We will be providing Moderna vaccines for 1st doses, 2nd doses and boosters for those over 40 or who are high risk with underlying health conditions. Boosters are now available if it has been 3 month since your 2nd dose.

We have previously opened our walk in clinics to all, however, this clinic is restricted to our PCN patients.

We would like to make you aware that further clinics WILL follow before Christmas, we are just awaiting delivery confirmations before we advertise dates. Please follow our social media page and our website for the latest information.

Normal Opening Hours Resume

Hartfields Medical Centre Closure 


The Hartfields site of McKenzie Group Practice based at Hartfields Extra Care Village in Hartlepool has been temporarily closed since mid-March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This temporary closure was to enable us to use our staff more effectively and to ensure we could comply with social distancing requirements.


We will be applying to NHS Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to request the closure of the Hartfields site permanently to bring services together at our other sites to enhance clinical quality and practice resilience, to run more efficiently, and continue to deliver high quality of care to patients.


We currently have a registered list of 2180 patients at Hartfields Medical Centre.


We have underwent a six-week period of patient and stakeholder engagement (between Monday 19 July – Sunday 29 August 2021) to gather the views and experiences during the temporary closure of the branch.


We asked all patients over the age of 16 years who are registered with any of our McKenzie Group practices (McKenzie House, Victoria Medical Centre, Wynyard Road Medical Centre, Hartfields Medical Centre or Throston Medical Centre) to complete the survey. We want to understand what the impact of the temporary closure has been on you and your family, as well as to better understand the potential impact of permanent closure. This will then inform our, and the CCG's, decision making about primary care services in the area.


We have since committed to a further period of engagement and are currently agreeing with stakeholders what this should look like.

Thank you to all of those who participated in the previous survey.
