Latest News:

Support Planners will be at Union Brae Surgery on the first Friday of every month, commencing Friday 4th October 2019, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm. No appointment necessary.

 

They can help with the following:

•Help with social isolation – signposting to different groups within the area.

•Support with sourcing care – information about the different options available.

•Sourcing cleaners / gardeners / builders etc (not recommendations)

•Helping with enablers – to take you out or provide a sitting service.

•Finding transport options available.

•Help with finding day centres to attend.

•Support to claim Attendance Allowance.

From the 10th June 2019 to make an appointment with the hearing aid clinic you will have to ring the Audiology Department at Freeman Hospital direct on 0191 2231043. Freeman have asked for all telephone calls to be handled by their specialist team of audiologists to ensure the patients are all booked into the correct appointment slots. Union Brae have welcomed this decision as it frees up the telephone system for our patients to get through to speak to our staff. You will still be seen at Union Brae Surgery in Berwick but we are no longer booking the appointments.

Patient Access:

We have changed our clinical system to SystmOne. If you use our patient access service you will need to attend the surgery to pick up a new username and password. You will not be able to use your old pin number and password.

We will be closed for staff training on Wednesday the 2nd December between 12.30pm to 1.30pm (2pm at our Norham Surgery)

New Patient?

NHS researchers in the UK are working together to help find a vaccine against COVID-19.


Many possible COVID-19 vaccines are being tested in the UK. Different vaccines may work better for different groups of people. It's important we include people from all backgrounds and ages in our research. This gives researchers an understanding of how well each vaccine may work.

All COVID-19 vaccines being researched in the NHS have gone through strict safety testing, and have been approved by a number of processes. We use the same high standards to COVID research as we do to all NHS research.

We are still looking for volunteers for studies in the North East and North Cumbria to find a vaccine against COVID-19.
