A new JMAPS (joint musculoskeletal and pain clinic) service started across Northumberland on the 1st July.  As part of this, the CCG decided that the physio service in Wooler would be withdrawn but, due to pressure from the practices and patient groups, they have agreed that the service will continue for one day a week from August.

We have been further informed today (9th July) that any patients wishing to be referred to orthopaedic services for treatment have to have contact with the JMAPS service first and we are therefore unable to refer directly to orthopaedics. 

This is something, again, which we were not informed about by the CCG and are awaiting further communication from them.

We will continue to fight to maintain physio services in Wooler as will our patient group.



GP Registrars

From late 2014 we, once again, became a training practice for GP registrars (fully qualified doctors who are training to become GPs). Working in practices is an important part of their training and we hope you will help us with this by accepting appointments to see them.

Medical Students

The surgery currently helps Newcastle University Medical School with the teaching of medical students throughout the year.     Unlike the GP Registrars, these young people are not yet qualified doctors. If you agree to see a medical student, you will also be seen by the GP on duty.

You have the right to refuse this if you wish but we would ask for your  cooperation in the teaching of these young, next generation hospital doctors and GPs.

Thank you.
