COVID Update: in line with other NHS providers, we will be continuing to require staff and patients to wear masks in surgery to protect those who are vulnerable. As part of our work, we see sick people and therefore it is vital we ensure that those who remain more susceptible to the COVID and its complications are safe in the surgery. As the virus numbers improve (hopefully) over the spring and summer we will continue to review this and the ongoing phone first policy for doctor appointments.
Welcome to Glenpark Medical Practice
At Glenpark we offer the highest quality modern healthcare, whilst being grounded in traditional patient, family and community centred values.
The practice was founded in 1905 by Dr Dougall on Ravensworth Road and has remained committed to being at the heart of Dunston ever since.
The practice has about 9400 patients from quite a small area centred around Dunston.
Our compact practice area makes us very accessible for our patients. And with a team that now comprises 11 permanent doctors, up to 3 registrars, 4 nurses, a health care assistant and a phlebotomist, we can offer our patients a wide choice of skills, knowledge and experience.
We are part of the Gateshead Inner West Primary Care Network. Please click here to view our website and find out more about the services we offer as a PCN.
