Here at Roseworth Surgery we take pride in offering our patients high quality primary care in the heart of Gosforth. We are situated at the end of Gosforth High Street near the Town Moor, close to local shops, pharmacies and transportation links.
'If you are wanting a medical completed, please call our reception staff to organise for you on 0191 213 2392. Please do not book an appointment online.'
'Keep checking our 'latest news' link on the right hand side under 'quick links' to stay up to date with new doctors and changes in the surgery.'
Same day appointments available! Particularly for acutely unwell children under 5 with our Doctor of the Day - appointment or telephone.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. Our online system allows you to do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, cancel an appointment and ask questions.
Partners in Care
At Roseworth Surgery, we are a Teaching Practice who teaches stage 1, 2 and 4 Students. We are no longer teaching stage 3 & 5 students. Every 6 month we have a rotation of GP Registrars who are training to be GP Doctors and every 4 month we have 2 Foundation level 2 (F2) Doctors who have came here from Hospital posts to learn primary care. This is a huge benefit to our practice as we're able to offer same day appointments and also, without them there would be no future GP's.
Manage your Healthcare Online
We have an Online Service to allow you to interact with our Practice at your convenience, to order repeat medication - book and cancel appointments and asking questions by using the Internet. You can do this on the go or at the comfort of your own home.
If you would like this service, ask at Reception with a form of ID and one of our Receptionists will give you your username and password.
Online access to medical records & test results.
Roseworth surgery can now enable online access to detail coded information. The new functionality will allow patients to access all read coded entries in their medical records. It will also allow patients to view all test results.
This service is NOT automatic; patients will have to request access via their online account.
This request will then be reviewed by a GP who will make the decision whether or not to grant access. In a very small number of cases the request may be refused. If you do not have an online account please as at reception and they will organise this for you!
Roseworth surgery patient information.
The Department of Health has advised us that at the end of January they will begin extracting information on Fit Notes (formerly called Sick Notes) from patient medical records. This information will be anonymised so individuals will not be identified. The data is being collected on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions to:
• Undertake research analysis to inform policy relating to employment and sickness absence, including evaluation of the Fit for Work programme
• Help identify geographic level differences in return to work so that national and local providers can respond to provide appropriate services.
The surgery has no power to prevent this data extraction which will be retrospective to December 2014 and will continue until August 2018. Individuals may, however, opt out by requesting an opt out form from reception, this will lead to a read code (XaZ89) being added to your notes to prevent extraction.
