Share your views about accessing GP practices
Patients, carers and members of the public in Northumberland are being urged to have their say about accessing healthcare at GP practices.
NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is responsible for buying and planning the county’s healthcare, would like to better understand patient experiences to help inform any future changes to accessing GP services in the county.
Through an online survey, the CCG wants to gather patients’ views on issues such as which healthcare professional they are willing to see, how quickly they want to be seen, if weekend and evening appointments are useful, and how far they are willing to travel or if a telephone or online consultation would be preferred.
The survey is available here and is open until 25 February.
It will take around 10 minutes to complete. And as a thank-you, those sharing their views will be given the option to be entered into a prize draw where they could win a £100, £50 or £25 High Street voucher.
6-8 Week Baby Checks
There are currently delays with our 6-8 week checks, however we are trying our best to perform these as close to the 8-week mark as possible. We apologise for any issues this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to catch up.
Ordering Medication Online
Due to updates with our clinical systems you may encounter problems when you are trying to order your medication online which prevents you from doing so. If you are having issues with this please contact the surgery on 01670 712 821.
Face coverings from 19th July 2021
Face coverings will still be mandatory after 19th July.
