Welcome to Monkseaton Medical Centre    

Our doctors and nurses pride themselves on delivering outstanding NHS medical care.

If you’re looking for a doctor surgery with personal, friendly care then look no further.

Monkseaton Medical Centre is a training practice. The junior doctors are fully qualified and have already done training in hospitals. They can provide a full range of GP services.  If they are not certain about what to do they will ask a senior colleagues for advice.

GP Partner Retirement

We are sorry to announce that on 31st December 2018 Dr Nick Lawson will be retiring from the Practice.

Dr Lawson would like you to know that it has been a privilege to serve the community of Monkseaton as a GP over the last 30 years. Dr Lawson has enjoyed meeting, listening to and offering treatment to many people of all ages. Dr Lawson told us that the changes over the last 30 years have been extraordinary but the practice has risen to these and is in great shape.  He is very proud of the team of administrators and clinicians who work at Monkseaton.

Dr Coundon, Salam and Hartley will continue to be partners at Monkseaton Medical Centre and Bridge Medical and continue his legacy. As well as our long standing team of GP’s, Nurses and Admin you will see some new faces in January and we hope you will make them feel welcome.

I am sure you will join with us when we wish Dr Lawson a long and happy retirement.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will betime for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive. Please ask reception for further details.
