Welcome to Gosforth Memorial Medical Centre
At Gosforth Memorial Medical Centre we aim to treat all our patients courteously, fairly and in complete confidence. We endeavour to provide a family based service and have particular interest in antenatal, children’s health, minor surgery, dermatology, family planning and chronic disease management.
Prescription Collection is changing
Commencing July 2018 anyone asking to collect a prescription for either themselves or on behalf of someone else will need to bring proof of ID and sign on collection. This is to protect your personal data in line with GDPR.
Should you wish your prescriptions to be collected by someone else, we will need signed consent from you to do so.
DO YOU TAKE PREGABALIN OR GABAPENTIN?
The law is changing from April 2019 - click below for more information.
Age for consent has changed
The age for parents having automatic consent to a child's record has now reduced to 11. There is national guidance which the Practice has to adhere to. If the child consents to the parent having access a proxy access form can be used which needs to be completed and signed by the child at the surgery. Ask a receptionist for further information if required.
Children and young people
If your child has become unwell in the last few days and you would like urgent advice then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak to you and if necessary to see your child the same day – this could save you an unnecessary trip to A+E or a Walk-in Centre. Can we also make you aware of the Little Orange Book, which provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children – ask at the reception desk for a copy, or view it online here
After our inspection on 15th March 2015, we obtained an "outstanding". Follow the link for further information.
