Welcome to Northumberland Park Medical Group

We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.

Our aim is to provide a high quality, caring and personal health care service to our whole patient population by:

  • Putting our patients at the centre of what we do
  • Having a highly qualified and trained multi-professional integrated primary Healthcare Team
  • Offering our services in a safe, supportive and suitably equipped environment, using technological advances in healthcare systems for our patient’s benefit

Our practice area is Shiremoor, Backworth, West Allotment, Earsdon, Holywell and parts of Seaton Delaval.

This practice has a zero tolerance approach and any patient who is violent, aggressive or abusive to GPs, nurses, practice staff or other patients and may be removed from the practice list.

This practice is a training practice so you may get an appointment with a GP Registrar.

We work very closely with our allied Community Nursing, Health Visiting and Specialist Teams to ensure your care is co-ordinated to the highest of standards. We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.


If you’re a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

If you already use online services you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.
