Due to baby clinic being cancelled Christmas Day and New Years Day we are holding an extra baby clinic on New Years Eve 10.30am - 12pm. There will be a doctor, nurse and health visitor present.

This year we have joined forces with Metro Radio to support Mission Christmas which is a fantastic charity supporting children who are living in poverty all over the North East. The Grove Medical Group is an official drop off point for this years campaign, collecting toys and gifts for children aged 0-18. These gifts must be unopened and not in wrapping paper. Donations are being accepted until 13th December.


If you have missed our clinics and need an appointment, please call the surgery to book an appointment with one of our nurses.
