We do not accept new patients from north of the river wear.
The practice teaches medical students and has received official recognition from Professor Steve Jones and Dr Hugh Alberti of Newcastle University for outstanding contribution to medical student teaching in 2018/19.
The patient consultation survey which was carried out July & August 21 received positive results and following that our proposed relocation to Riverview Health Centre was approved by Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group December 21. A lot of work has been going on in the background to facilitate this and it is hope that the practice will be able to relocate around November/ December 22. All patients will be notified as soon the location date is confirmed. The partners would like to thank all patients for their support in this process.
