Welcome to Benfield Park Medical Group
Our highly skilled medical professionals are dedicated to giving the very best care, advice and support to our patients. We operate over 2 sites; Benfield Park Healthcare and Diagnostic Centre on Benfield Road in Walkergate and a branch surgery at the Molineux Street NHS Centre in Byker.
A number of antenatal appointments will be arranged during your pregnancy, frequently with a midwife or sometimes an obstetrician (doctor specialising in pregnancy). They will check the health of you and your baby and give you useful information.
Parents will be invited by the Health Visitor to attend for a six to eight-week developmental check for baby and can seek advice about behaviour, sleep, minor illnesses or family health issues. A GP will also be available if you are worried about baby.
If you have a long term condition i.e. Asthma, COPD, Hypertension, Diabetes or Heart disease you will be offered an annual review which we feel is essential to ensure you are receiving appropriate and up-to-date treatment in line with local and national guidelines.
The practice offers a free and confidential service to all women aged 13 years and over for contraception and sexual health.
