Welcome to Burn Brae Medical Group, one of the longest established Medical Practices in the UK, much older than the NHS itself. We are based in Hexham, Northumberland and our catchment area covers approximately 200 square miles. We are a recipient of the highest quality award in UK General Practice. Read More
If you have recently travelled abroad or have come into contact with someone who has, and you have any of the symptoms listed below, please do not come to the surgery. Either phone to speak to a GP or call 111. The NHS have produced a website that will have up to date information for the public.
Burn Brae Medical Group is delighted to collaborate with Tyne Green Parkrun and become an official ‘Parkrun practice’. We hope that many of our patients alongside our staff will get involved with this fantastic weekly event - whether you run, jog, walk, push a buggy or help to marshal.
The event is held every Saturday at 9am at Tyne Green in Hexham. If you optionally sign up online you will be able to print off a barcode to log your time and track your progress.
You can now book appointments in the evenings as well as Saturday. Local Practices are offering this service, called the Hadrian Extra Care Hub, in Corbridge. Appointments must be booked through our reception team. Just ask when you phone.
After many years of faithful service we have taken the decision to retire our repeat prescription line. There are a few reasons for this, most notably because a significant proportion of our patients now make their requests online. We will still continue to take requests for repeat prescriptions by phone, but instead of phoning a dedicated number between set times, you can now simply phone the main surgery number on 01434 603627. It would be best to phone after 10am to avoid our busiest time of day. We do prefer requests to come via our online system, if you wish to sign up just ask a member of the reception team. Many thanks.
PSA testing is in the news and you may be considering whether you should have a blood test. Before you do so please read more about it on the NHS Choices website, Prostate Cancer UK or Patient.co.uk
A leaflet to download and print at home is also available. The important message is that if you are concerned and in particular if you have symptoms please make an appointment with your GP.
