We are a network of four GP practices – Jesmond Health Partnership, The Grove Medical Group, Avenue Medical Practice and Roseworth Surgery.

We work collaboratively with our sister network in North Gosforth to maximise efficiency.

This collaborative approach means that specialists from each network can work together, sharing best practices and raising standards, and teams can collectively provide the best holistic care for patients.

The networks also share a Strategic Manager who oversees the day-to-day running of both PCNs, as well as other supporting functions across business intelligence, IT, communications and project oversight.
