Welcome to Haltwhistle Medical Group
The Haltwhistle Medical Group is based at the Health Centre on Greencroft Avenue in Haltwhistle.
The building has been fully refurbished and offers a modern, inviting interior, and full access for disabled patients. All of our consultation rooms are on the ground floor, and guide/hand rails are available along all of our corridors.
The practice doctors are - Dr M Baker, Dr R Adamson, Dr S Davies, Dr C Robertson, Dr S Miller, Dr J Shaw and Dr G Crackett. We are also a GP Registrar Training Practice so every year we welcome at least one GP Registrar and this year we have Dr W Solyom.
We work as a team with the Community Midwife, Community Nurses, Practice Nurses, Health Visitors, Podiatrist, School Nurses and CPNs to provide a comprehensive service for the Haltwhistle district. The practice covers an area of 200 square miles and serves around 5,800 patients. Our website contains lots of information about accessing healthcare services.
