Wellspring doctors' surgery in Killingworth is a teaching practice, and as such aims to provide high quality healthcare to its 5,500 patients in the north west of the city. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you. Because we teach, please be sure to read the section on "Teaching and Training" - this will tell you more about this important work.

This practice was first established in 1957 in Longbenton. We changed our name to Wellspring Medical Practice in 2003 to reflect a Proverb which is part of the practice ethos "above all, look after your heart for it is the wellspring of life...!"
