We were invited recently to present an update on the surgery in Gosforth to members of the U3A.  Here are the presentation slides   Presentation to U3A 20th October

Our most recent work involved the creation of a booklet to explain how to get the best from the surgery. Many patients may not be aware of changes in Health service provision and the range of new ways of getting help.  This booklet is available online and in paper format and can be reproduced in alternative formats if requested.  Please contact the surgery to see if we can help.
