The Patient Group meeting scheduled for Wednesday 11th July is postponed and will now be held on Thursday, 19th July 2018 at 6.30p.m.

Our most recent fundraiser

Our most recent fund raiser was to hold a Cupcake Day in aid of Alzheimer's Society.  We had a "best taste" competition and sold cakes in the waiting room (a big thanks to our Patient Group chairman for manning the stall in the morning).  A lot of staff baked many cakes.  Our "best taste" winner is pictured receiving her prize below (donated previously).  Thanks to all the cakes baked by staff and patient support, we managed to raise £105 towards this great cause.  Thank you all.

New Health app available

The Health Help Now app helps people find the right NHS service when they are ill or injured.  Go to to download the app (free download for smartphones) so people will never be stuck about where to go when they need health help. It shows which services are open and where they are. It can help people find out if they need to see a doctor, pharmacist or use a minor injuries service.

Inappropriate Social Media usage

It has come to our attention that some people are leaving unofficial reviews on various social media sites (e.g. facebook etc), including the use of extremely inappropriate language and personal attacks on members of staff.  This is not acceptable and may result in action being taken by the surgery (and other public bodies).  These sites are not anything to do with Northdown Surgery - we have no editing or control rights and no responses will be made to these comments.  In order to have your review/feedback/complaint responded to in the appropriate way, please use the correct channels as above.
