Helping GPs work collaboratively for the benefit of patients and staff
Sunderland GP Alliance is owned by the GP Practices of Sunderland and helps GPs work collaboratively for the benefit of patients and staff. We are a not-for-profit organisation, ensuring any surplus is reinvested back into better services for patients.
By working together, our General Practice community is able to provide innovative services across the city, and work collectively with other key system partners. You’ll find great examples of this approach across our website including information on our Enhanced Access service, Clinical Pharmacist provision, and ECG service.
We also run a number of practices where we aim to provide the best possible services for patients. All of our practices (where inspected) have been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission.
Sunderland GP Alliance is a not-for-profit collaboration of GP practices in Sunderland. All GP Practices in Sunderland are members of the organisation, covering approximately 285,000 patients.
All these practices work together, via the Alliance, to help improve services for patients at a time when the NHS is under pressure. The Alliance also runs three practices in Washington, South Hylton and New Silksworth.
Sunderland GP Alliance runs three medical practices at New Silksworth Medical Practice, South Hylton Surgery and Monument Surgeries.
We also run a number of other services that cover the whole city such as our Enhanced Access service that provides appointments on an evening and at weekends.
Practices who are members of the GP Alliance benefit from being part of a larger network established to support primary care development.
We can offer economies of scale, support with recruitment and centralised services and aim to be the voice of primary care in the region.
