Our Mission Statement - Our aim here at Distington Surgery is to provide a quality healthcare service to the community and assist them in improving and maintaining their health through teamwork, education and specialist advice. Distington Surgery promotes understanding and respect among all patients and staff through a confidential, unbiased, caring and committed environment.

Distington Surgery is a member of Copeland Primary Care Network which covers a registered patient population of circa 62,000. The network is made up of seven member practices namely Distington Group Practice, Fellview Healthcare, Lowther Medical Centre, Mansion House Surgery, Queen Street Surgery, Seascale Group Practice, Westcroft House Surgery.  Copeland Primary Care Network has adopted a flat practice network structure where all seven practices are equal and employment contracts are shared across all seven member practices.


Previously if a patient had asthma and diabetes for example they would be seen at multiple times to manage each condition, following patient feedback the nurses  now offer a "one stop shop" appointment and cover all chronic disease conditions.

  • Specialist clinics will still be held for each condition if the nurse feels you require a bit of extra help.
  • This will allow patients more flexibility regarding appointment times and the length of the appointment time will be tailored to the individual patients requirements.
  • An additional practice nurse will still be available each morning and afternoon for general nurse appointments.
