We are a 2 partner training practice, based in purpose built premises in Jarrow, South Tyneside. The practice has suitable access for disabled visitors.
We are committed to the provision of high quality, patient led services.
Being a training practice we have registrars and F2 doctors who carry out consultations within the practice, under the supervision of Drs Bedi and Cordner. As well as the GP’s we have our Nurse Practitioner Manager Sharon Williams, Nurse Practitioner Helen Sim, Practice Nurse Rachael Park and Health Care Assistant Stephen Payne.
We have a full compliment of attached staff who, although not directly employed by the practice, work closely with us as part of the community team.
Other important team members of the practice include the receptionists and clerical staff. Our receptionists and clerical staff can answer many of your queries but more complex administrative matters may be handed to the Operations Manager, Chelsea Wade.
The doctors and staff seek to provide the services which meet your needs. If you have any suggestions or criticisms about any part of the practice please speak to the practice manager or alternatively the Mayfield patient group who have a suggestion box in the waiting area.
