About

GP practices in Easington and Sedgefield have formed a not for profit Community Interest Company – South Durham Health CIC. COMPANY NO. 7807964. Community interest companies exist to benefit  communities and the purpose of South Durham Health CIC is to relieve illness and promote health amongst residents and patients registered  with GP practices and those who work in the localities of  Easington and Sedgefield.
SDH delivers health services to patients across both localities and provides support, training and education to its member practices.
The membership of SDH is drawn from partner General Practitioners in twenty two GP practices. SDH is overseen by a Board of Directors.
