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
Run by Action on Hearing Loss (previously RNID) and working closely with the region’s audiology team at the Freeman Hospital, we offer a free hearing aid support service (for NHS hearing aids) on the 1st Wednesday monthly 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
Hearing aids should be re-tubed every six months or so to maintain a good quality of sound and comfort and we can give you new batteries too. This charity-run project is free (but donations are welcome of course) and is an alternative to the Hexham Hospital session if your hearing aids are just needing re-tubing – and there’s usually a shorter waiting time too!
Exercise is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but for too long we’ve neglected to take our recommended dose.
We know that many parents wish to have their children vaccinated against Meningitis B and there is currently a lot of publicity about this.
