There are two surgeries on the peninsula, one in Shotley and one in Holbrook.
Each surgery has a Dispensary which will issue prescribed drugs to eligible patients (if you live within one mile of an independent Pharmacy we are not permitted to dispense to you).
Each surgery is a well equipped, purpose designed building and is conveniently situated in the centre of its village on bus routes.
Wheelchair access, disabled toilets and baby changing facilities are provided at both premises. In addition to the main surgeries, there is a surgery held at the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, for pupils only.
