Newcastle community wellbeing centre combines modern science with “ancient wisdom”
IDOS, a community wellbeing centre encouraging people to see healthcare professionals when they are well, not just when they are sick, has opened its doors in the North East.
The centre, based in St Peter’s Basin, Newcastle, is a new style of healthcare where conventional, psychological, and complementary professionals work together to care for the whole body in a pleasant environment conducive to feeling good.
In line with the NHS long-term plan, IDOS, a social enterprise, employs a combination of medical, social, and behavioural prescribing with the objective of helping people in the community stay well.
Alongside normal GP and other Consultant led medical specialities such as Sleep Medicine, Gynaecology, and Rheumatology, clients can also combine their care with complementary therapies such as Nutrition, Yoga, Acupuncture, and Shiatsu also offered onsite.
Dr Ceri Sutherland, co-owner and managing partner of IDOS said, “At IDOS we combine modern scientific knowledge and technology blended with ancient wisdom to give our clients the best chance to feel truly well. We focus on getting the basics right: sleep, diet, exercise and self-knowledge.
“Our experienced range of practitioners offer the following specialities: GP, Sleep Medicine, Rheumatology, Gynaecology, Elderly care, Psychology, Acupuncture, Yoga and Shiatsu. They work together in our welcoming, easily accessible clinical space, to get the best for our clients.”
“Covid-19 has made us all think differently about our health and wellbeing, and it has been a long road to opening our doors here in Newcastle. The team is incredibly excited to start meeting our communities and working with them to develop bespoke health options that work for them and their families.”
