Our Practice

We serve a community of 3600 patients, many living in rural locations. We have surgeries in both Humshaugh and Wark villages and patients can attend either.

Our most recent CQC inspection was carried out on 5th March 2019.  Click here to see the inspection report.

The Team

Our team is made up of four GP’s, Practice Nurses, Community Nurses, Midwife, Podiatrist, Dietitian, Health Visitor,  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.

Our surgeries are by appointment only. We have urgent “book on the day” appointments available at both sites each day. Please call 01434 681281 to make both routine and urgent appointments.

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 best able to suggest appropriate or alternative organisations that are better able to help you.

Clinics
We offer clinics for maternity, child health, family planning/women’s health, diabetes, dietetic, podiatry, asthma and respiratory diseases, heart disease, minor surgery and health checks for men and women. To view in more detail click here: Clinics

Dispensing Service

We have an onsite medication dispensing service (based at our Wark site with daily delivery to Humshaugh) for those who live more than a mile from a chemist  and  a dispensing service is available for acute medication requirements during consulting sessions at Humshaugh.

Home Delivery Service for Medication. If you are unable to collect your medication from the Surgery we have drop off points at Barrasford, Acomb and Fourstones and we can also offer home delivery.  If you would like your medication delivered to one of our drop off points or your home, Please contact the Surgery to register for this service.  Our delivery service takes place on a Tuesday and Friday. If you request home delivery, please ensure that there is someone available to receive your medication. For safety reasons we can not leave medication unattended and it will be returned to the Surgery for collection.

Hadrian Extra Care Hub – Corbridge

If you are find it difficult to attend an appointment during the working day, the Hub offers pre-bookable, routine appointments with GP’s, Nurses and Health Care Assistants.  This service is for general practice issues, not urgent care.  To book an appointment, please ring us on 681281

Patient Participation Group

Our Patient Participation Group (PPG) meets annually and maintains contact via email”. This enables us to keep in touch with patients’ views and share proposed changes and current practice issues.  We aim to reach out to different groups within the community, for example, our practice nurses have attended first schools and WI meeting to provide information on chosen topics. If you would be interested in arranging such a session for a group you are involved with please do get in touch”

If you would you be interested in joining our PPG, please let our Reception team know next time you are in surgery, or contact our Practice Manager Kate Lowe kate.lowe1@nhs.net or telephone 01434 680003.
