Our colleagues in Public Health are predicting a surge in the number of people who will get pneumonia over the winter period. It is important  that if you have COPD that you ensure you have sufficient supply of inhalers and your other medication (including your rescue pack of antibiotics and steroids) and that you try and avoid mixing with people who already have coughs and colds over this time. Can we also take this opportunity to remind you to ensure you have had your flu vaccine this year and that you have had your pneumococcal vaccine in the past. Finally if you are still smoking we would encourage you to consider stopping to help your chest, discuss this at the surgery when you next attend.

For those who don't have COPD please contact us if you have a cough and fever that seems worse than usual, particularly if you are getting short of breath.

Northgate Medical Practice

We are a committed GP Teaching Practice and as such have Specialist Trainee GPs attached to the practice as part of their training and experience. You may be offered an appointment to see one of them whilst they are working with us. They will see patients in surgery and will undertake home visits.

These are qualified Doctors in various stages of their post graduate education, and those who specifically want to work/train as a GP in Primary Care.  The Specialist Trainees work at the Practice and dependent on their stage of post graduate education will be with us for a fixed term of either 4 months or 1 year.   They are fully registered with the General Medical Council and are under the supervision of one of the Practice's GP Trainers', Dr R Walkington, Dr A Charley and Dr R Lindsay. 

Northgate Medical Practice is committed to supporting and training these Doctors to become safe, caring and enthusiastic General Practitioners of the future.

We are also committed to assist with the Training of Paramedic Practitioner's, these are more skilled Paramedics who wish to extend their roles out in the community. We are also  involved in the training of future Nurses.
