Our Practice

We serve a community of 4000 patients, many living in rural locations. We have surgeries in both Humshaugh and Wark villages and patients can attend either.

The Team

Our Team is made up of four GPs, Practice Nurses,  Community Nurses, Midwife, Health Visitor,  Podiatrist, Dietitian, Nursery Nurse, Admin, Reception, Dispensing staff and Practice Manager.

 

Services

We offer a full range of General Practice services with regular surgeries, Monday to Friday.

We have urgent on the day appointments available at both sites.  Please call 01434 681281 to book an appointment.

There is no evening surgery at Wark on a Tuesday or Thursday.

Wark surgery is open until 7.30pm on a Monday evening and Humshaugh surgery is open until 7.30pm on Thursday evening for pick-ups and enquiries.

In addition we hold clinics for maternity, child health, health checks for men and women, family planning/women’s health, diabetes, asthma and respiratory diseases, heart disease and minor surgery.

We offer an onsite medication dispensing service for those who live more than a mile from a chemist.

Care Navigation

There may be times when you approach the Practice for help, but more appropriate help may be better provided elsewhere.

You may find that our GP’s will direct you to our Reception team for advice as they have been trained in care navigation and will be able to suggest appropriate or alternative organisations that are better able to help you.
