The Gables Medical Group serves the whole of Bedlington as well as its surrounding area, we also offer a dispensing service to those patients living in Cambois, North Blyth and some of East Sleekburn (restrictions apply). The practice boundary is illustrated in our Practice Booklet (availanble from reception). Enquiries relating to this should be directed to the Practice Manager.

Services

We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children, pregnant women, diabetes and asthma sufferers, and for patients needing specific minor surgery. 

Registration

It is quick and easy to register with a GP using our simple online GP registration form. Whether you are new to the area or have never registered with a GP practice before, there is usually no need to come to the practice to complete your registration and no proof of address is required. We are a local GP Practice and have a catchment area for home visiting purposes, but we welcome patients from outside our practice boundary.

Disabled Access

Each of our surgeries is suitable for disabled access, and disabled parking spaces are available in our car park.

Disabled toilets for patients are also provided. If you have any problems accessing a service please inform a member of staff and we will do all we can to improve the situation.

Training

As a training practice there are times when there may be university students present within your consultation. They will spend several weeks with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. You will be informed if there will a student present before your consultation, and you may opt out of this if you so require.

We are also a Training Practice for GP Registrars – these are qualified doctors who are training to be specialised in General Practice and usually spend 6 months with us.  You may be offered an appointment with a GP registrar as you would any GP within the surgery. At times you may be asked if you would be happy for your consultation to be recorded as part of their training.  At any time you can say no to this. You can find out more here
