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.
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.
