Welcome to the Bellingham Surgery Website
We are one of the most rural practices in England covering 800 square miles from the Scottish borders north of Byrness and Kielder to Kirkwhelpington and Barrasford to the south. We have over 3300 patients, many living in remote farming locations across the practice.
The surgery in Bellingham was purpose-built in 1984, we then had extension to this that was completed at the end of 2010.
