Ashburn is a medium size surgery with around 5000 patients. We are a busy practice with 3 permanent GP’s, and 2 Nurse Practitioners who are supported by an excellent Nursing Care assistant and admin team. Attached support staff include a pharmacist for Warfarin Monitoring, Midwife and Northern Guild student councillors.
AREA COVERED BY THE PRACTICE
We take new patients from South Hylton, Millfield, Pallion, Hendon, East End, Ashbrooke, Grangetown, Humbledon, Hastings Hill, Farringdon, Hollycarrside, Ryhope and Moorside, which is our southern border.
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 practice is currently undertaking a patient consultation & survey exercise on a possible relocation to Riverview Health Centre. Riverview is a modern, spacious disabled friendly building and lots of our patients already attend for Treatment Room, Physio, Cardiology, Covid Vaccine and GP Out of Hours services. The survey date closes at end of Friday 27th August 2021. You can complete an online survey or contact the practice for a paper copy. If you are considering registering with the practice in the near future please bear this in mind.
