Patient Participation GroupPractice Blog

At Glenpark we offer the highest quality modern healthcare, whilst being grounded in traditional patient, family and community centred values.

The practice was founded in 1905 by Dr Dougall at its current main site on Ravensworth Road and has remained committed to being at the heart of Dunston ever since. When Dunston Health Centre was built in the 1970s, another practice in the area (Timaru House, which has since been demolished) moved in. When Dr Fairburn retired in 1975, Dr Brown at the Health Centre joined Dr Aitchison and Dr Cross at Glenpark. Since that time, we have maintained the two practices: the main surgery at Glenpark and a branch surgery at the Health Centre.

The practice has about 9400 patients from quite a small area centred around Dunston. Our compact practice area makes us very accessible for our patients. And with a team that now comprises 11 permanent doctors, up to 3 registrars, 4 nurses, a health care assistant and a phlebotomist, we can offer our patients a wide choice of skills, knowledge and experience.
