Dr Walker

We wish to announce that Dr Walker will be retiring at the end of March. We thank him enormously for his years of support and dedication to the practice and his patients.

We hope to be able to let you know about his successor very soon.


Several members of the Sele team are volunteering at Saturday's parkrun so come and give parkrun a go if you have never tried it, let them cheer you on around the course, and congratulate you at the finish line!  You can run jog or walk the 5km course at Tyne Green, starting at 9am.

Covid Boosters - 29 October 2021

With immediate effect, bookings for covid booster vaccinations at Hexham Mart are available via the National Booking system by calling 119 or going to nhs.uk/covid-vaccination.  The site is Hexham Mart (The Sele).  Please do not come to the practice as the service is at Hexham Mart.  You will only be eligible to book 6 months  and 1 week (190 days) after your second dose and will have received a letter or text when eligible.

There are a small number of patients who need 3rd doses whom we should already have contacted.

Covid Boosters

Hexham Mart has been established as a vaccination site for Sele and other practices' patients for those with appointments only.  This is not a walk in site.  Practices are prioritising patients for appointments and are contacting people by text letter or, occasionally, phone call. The practice is not able to provide covid vaccinations at the Primary Care Centre.

Please be patient as we are also managing flu clinic recalls, and are running on reduced staff numbers due to sickness absence.
