There are two surgeries on the peninsula, one in Shotley and one in Holbrook.
Both surgeries have Dispensaries 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).
Both surgeries are well equipped, purpose designed buildings and are conveniently situated in the centres of their villages 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.
