About

As a specialist clinical care provider, we are dedicated to helping you find your place within the community. We are passionate about helping anyone who wants improve their lives.

Our specialist support, combined with the usual care you would expect from a GP practice, means we can help you with all aspects of your health and wellbeing.

If you want support with a substance use issue, or have found yourself homeless, we have specialist services that can help.

At Foundations we pride ourselves on being a social inclusion practice supporting people who find themselves excluded socially. Currently we support people who are seeking asylum or who have refugee status, people who are homeless, people who have problems with substance use and people who have had their access to NHS Primary Care limited.

Everyone is different. That’s why we have specialist teams here to support you in your time of need, regardless of your social group and background. We tailor our specialist care to suit your individual needs.

Our services

As the first GP specialist addiction service in the country and the only practice in Middlesbrough to offer clinical care specifically to refugee and asylum seekers, we work closely with different agencies and services so we can support you for a variety issues.

If you want to get over an alcohol issue, we can help! Our GP Alcohol project offers you short evidence based advice and solutions around alcohol use. You can be seen in your own GP practice without the hassle of coming to a treatment centre for help.
