About our practice
We are a very friendly local family practice and we pride ourselves on being able to offer a more personalised service to our patients. Our practice is highly patient focused and we have a multidisciplinary approach to patients’ health care. We aim to deliver the best for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with other health and social care workers in the community.
We want to provide an excellent standard of health care to our patients and we welcome your feedback to assist us in doing so.
This practice serves residents in Gateshead and we also have some patients that live in Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham.
If you live outside of our practice catchment area (Gateshead) you are welcome to register with us, however we would not be able to visit you at home in the event that you were unable to get to surgery. Ask at reception for more info.
Our team includes three GP doctors, one practice nurse and a healthcare assistant, as well as our practice manager and reception staff.
If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us simply come into the surgery where one of our receptionists will make an appointment with either the Practice Nurse or our Healthcare Assistant to complete a new patient health check. You will be given forms that need to be filled in prior to your appointment.
