Practice premises

Image of Newburn Surgery building The practice is an end of terrace house that has been extensively modified and extended for use as a surgery. An extension was built for consulting rooms down the side of the building in 1984 and there have been various works to improve facilities and the reception area over the years.

Image of Newburn Surgery reception area There is an open plan reception and waiting area. On the ground floor are three consulting suites and a fully equipped treatment room. There is a toilet with full facilities for disabled people. A fourth consulting suite is upstairs. Patients who cannot manage the stairs can be seen downstairs.

The practice has been looking for new premises for the past fifteen years. A scheme to develop these with the local library failed when council spending cuts put a halt to new developments. Attempts to get a modern surgery on the site of the old Newburn Hotel on Station Road foundered because the rent the NHS would pay was not enough to make the project viable. We are now looking to extend the premises over the small parking bay at the front of the building to build another consulting room on the ground floor and to redesign the reception area for greater privacy.
