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 R Adamson, Dr M Crick, Dr S Davies, Dr C Robertson, Dr S Miller and Dr S.Siddle. We are also a GP Registrar Training Practice so every year we welcome at least one GP Registrar , we most recently welcome to join the practice team Dr Gary Ferguson.


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.


 

 

Choose Well - Illness, Injury or Emergency?

If you are experiencing chest pain or any other life threatening symptoms please ring 999.

Alternatively 111 is a non-emergency number to call out of hours. It is free to call from a landline or a mobile phone. Trained staff will direct your call to the appropriate service.

If you are unsure what level of urgency you need medical assistance for please visit our minor illnesses or visit https://www.nhs.uk/

Pharmacy - Don't wait until you feel worse, even if it is just a cough or cold, you can consult your pharmacist before it gets more serious. They have trained technicians available to help manage minor illnesses and are available as a first port of call and can advise if you need more urgent medical assistance.

From the 1st April 2019, these medicines become controlled drugs. Therefore;

2.  If you collect your prescription, you will need to sign for the prescription each time.

3.  The maximum quantity you will be given on prescription is 28 days’ supply.

 


 
Online Services

GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • Book or cancel appointments online

  • Renew or order repeat prescriptions online

  • View parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found to be more convenient and saves some time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices

We also now have a new Facebook page, this page is designed to keep you up to date with news and information from the practice and nationally. We hope you find our page useful and informative.
