All patients registered at the Castlegate and Derwent surgery have a named doctor who has overall responsibility for your care and support. If you choose to see another doctor at the surgery you are entirely free to go on doing so exactly as before.
We accept patients living within a large rural practice area (see above map), as well as Cockermouth town. If you would like to register with us please complete one of our registration forms that are available from reception or download the form using the links below.
