About the practice

South Hylton Surgery is located approximately 3 miles from Sunderland City Centre. The surgery is a spacious modern building in the heart of the village of South Hylton with an adjoining pharmacy.

It was purpose built in 2006 providing a large waiting area and a range of clinical rooms on the ground floor. There are spacious offices, meeting and common rooms for staff on the first floor which has a lift access.

The surgery has good disabled access throughout the building. There is a car park for patients and there are good public transport links with regular bus services and a metro station close by.
