Instead of going to Eston Grange and Resolution Health Centre patients are advised to call 111.
Anyone wanting to see a doctor out-of-hours should call their GP Surgery to make an appointment at one of the new extended hours centres, including Redcar.
Other extended hours centres can be found in East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton, North Ormesby Health Village and the One Life Centre in Linthorpe.

Two men from Redcar were jailed for four months after admitting to the cruelty.
Michael Heathcock pleaded guilty to hammering the nail into Scamp's head while Richard Finch admitted to assisting.
Anyone who wants to attend is asked to gather on the beach below The Stray Café at half six this evening.
