A carer is someone who looks after a family member, partner or friend in need of help because they are ill, frail of have a disability and the care they provide is unpaid. The pressures of caring can have a damaging effect on health and wellbeing as carers often put the needs of the person for whom they care above their own needs. We provide an information point at the surgery which normally runs on the last Tuesday of the month. The contact number for Carers Northumberland is 01670 320025 or they can be contacted via e-amil on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Named GP for all Patients
From 1 April 2015, practices are required under their contract with NHS England to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients.
All patients at Gas House Lane Surgery have now been allocated a named GP. This will have no impact on appointments at the surgery as patients can still see the GP of their choice.
If you would like details of who your allocated GP is then please ask a member of our reception team.
