Welcome to
Fulwell Medical Centre

Fulwell Medical Centre is situated in the heart of Fulwell, in premises that were built in 1990 and designed to provide a building with the best layout for a modern GP surgery. The building is on one level, giving good access for elderly and disabled patients. In 1998 and 2005 the building was extended to try and accommodate our growing team of staff.

We have eight GP’s, two male and six female and a large team of nursing and support staff.

Our practice has a high proportion of older patients, so our aim is to devote more time to improving care for those patients, either at the surgery or in their own home.


Local and NHS services

The surgery works in partnership with local and NHS service providers and groups.

If you can’t get an appointment with your GP or can’t get there during the day due to work or other commitments you can use the Enhanced Access Service.

Sunderland offers extra appointments seven days a week at your local out of hours site, alternatively it may be possible to arrange an appointment at another site across the city which your practice will arrange.

Get more information about the Sunderland GP Enhanced Access Service.
