We Are Open

New Patients

New patients are always welcome at Benfield Park Medical Group.

Our Catchment Area

Our practice boundaries cover east end of Newcastle, including Walker, Heaton, Byker and Walkergate.

Before contacting us to register, please enter your postcode below to check you live in our catchment area.


New patients can now register with Benfield Park Medical Group using the new NHS Register with a GP Surgery service.

The application takes around 15 minutes, or less if you have an existing NHS login (used for the NHS App) or your
NHS Number.

You can use this service to register yourself, a child or another dependent. When registering an infant or child, the practice requires at least one parent or guardian to be a registered patient at the practice.

Please note that in line with National guidance, the practice does not support the prescribing of medication such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Fentanyl, Tramadol, Pregabalin and Gabapentin for long term use. We agree with the National Institute of Clinical Excellence that such drugs should only be used in the short term (less than 3 months) or for end of life care. There is no good clinical evidence to support their use otherwise and concerns regarding their serious side effects are very real. Patients joining the surgery who take these medications will be given an appointment with a GP to discuss the process of reduction and ultimately stopping, of these drugs.
