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.

We are now on Facebook and Twitter !

The Surgery will be closed from 12pm on the following afternoons for staff training

Tests & Results

Get a Blood Test

You can make an appointment with either the clinical assistant or the practice nurse or phlebotomist for blood tests which have been authorised by the doctor. The clinical assistant is trained to take blood but is not a qualified nurse.

Handing in Specimens

You may be asked by your doctor or nurse to provide a urine or stool sample to be handed in to Reception at a later date/time.  Please be aware that these samples need to be brought in no later than 17.00 hours Monday to Friday.  This is to ensure that the samples are here in time to go with the last collection by the courier who transports them to the laboratory for testing.

Test Results

Here at The Grove Medical Group, we aim to make sure that any test results which are sent off on your behalf are returned and reported on as soon as possible.  Please be aware that it takes around 7 days for the majority of test results to be returned to the practice and to be reviewed by the requesting clinician.  To that end, we would ask that you do not call the practice to request your test results as the GP will call you if there is a need, or a letter will be sent to you asking you to make either an appointment or to call the surgery.  We hope that this will reduce the high level of unnecessary calls which we are currently experiencing at the practice and lead to a better service overall. Please be assured that, where necessary, our Clinical staff will always call you before the seven day period if there is any urgent requirement to review you based on the results received at that point.
