Beacon View Medical Centre's Vision:
The practice team are committed to providing high quality care to all users of our services.
To be responsive to the needs of our patients and treat each patient as an individual.
We aim to offer an open channel of communication to maintain standards and consistency in the level of service provided.
To provide a rewarding place to work in a supportive team and a healthy work / life balance for those who work at Beacon View Medical Centre.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
As as practice we are working to ensure the health needs for military veterans are given priority.
If you are a veteran (a person who served 1 day or more in the UK Armed Forces) and would like your status recorded on your medical records please let us know.
Do you look after someone on a regular basis, unpaid, who is unable to manage on their own due to illness, disability, frailty, mental distress or impairment? This person could be a partner, family member, friend or neighbour, if so, you are a carer,
Caring for someone is an important role and Carers should receive support,help to maintain their own health, advice regarding balancing caring with other aspects of life, social groups, benefits advice etc. If you would like support please contact the surgery to register as a Carer and with your permission we can refer you to Gateshead Crossroads, who can offer support in all kinds of ways.
Crossroads also has a junior section for people aged 8-18, who regularly provide care or support to someone they live with at a level usually associated with an adult.
The practice set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG) in 2011 The aim of the group is to listen to patients’ views and work together to help improve the services we offer and inform patients how the practice works.
All registered patients are welcome.
If you would like to join our PPG and are happy to meet up every three or four months please complete a PPG application form which can be downloaded or picked up at reception.
