*Covid-19 Update*

In accordance with government advice regarding Covid-19, effective from today (19th March), the Upper Eden Medical Practice is changing all our routine face to face appointments with a GP or nurse to a telephone appointment. The Clinician will then determine whether you need to be seen when they call you.

Please do not attend the practice for an appointment unless you have been asked to do so.

We have had to amend the opening hours at our branch surgeries and our prescription collection times accordingly so please be advised of the following:

  • Our main practice in Kirkby Stephen's is open as per our normal hours, however prescriptions can only be collected between 9am and 6pm.
  • Our Tebay Surgery's opening hours are unchanged.
  • Our Brough Surgery is now only open on Monday's & Wednesday's from 8.30am to 1pm and on Friday's from 11am to 1pm; for prescription collections only.

Please rest assured that we are doing our very best to ensure that we can continue to provide healthcare services for as long as possible. These are difficult and unique circumstances, so thank you for your consideration and understanding during this time.


Dispensary Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday: 9am to 6pm only
