The Nursing Team at Monkseaton Medical Centre consists of:
- Kerry Llewellyn – Practice Nurse
- Clare O’Neill – Practice Nurse
- Angela Auld – Health Care Assistant

Between them, the Nursing Team can help with almost anything.

They are the blood takers in the practice and look after most of our patients requiring dressings. They take routine blood pressures, take part in Health Checks and annual reviews. They also assist the GPs and the other members of the nursing team.
The Pharmacy Team at Monkseaton Medical Centre consists of:
- Eliza Hughes
- Michelle Collins
Our Pharmacy team are responsible for all patient medication reviews. They look at any changes in medication on behalf of our doctors.
GP Net Earnings Computation
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice. The average earnings for GPs working at Monkseaton Medical Centre in the last financial year was £30,062.
