The practice provides medical care for patients resident in Birdston Nursing Home. Although located in the same grounds, this is not related to Lilyburn Nursing Home.
This is a secondary care unit (hospital type ward) mainly for patients with dementia and associated behavioural problems. The patients often come from outwith the locality to stay at Birdston, as its catchment area is in the north of the city.
A doctor from the surgery undertakes a ward round on a daily basis and liaises with a Psychiatric Consultant in charge of the wards.
Additionally the practice provides care to Lilyburn and Whitefield Lodge Nursing Homes
