IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN BY EITHER A GP OR NURSE RING ANY DAY FROM 08.30AM AND ARRANGE A TRIAGE APPOINTMENT 

 DO NOT COME DOWN TO THE SURGERY UNLESS TOLD TO DO SO BY A CLINICIAN

When the surgery is closed

If you ring the Health Centre on 0191 253 1113 you will be advised of the out of hours/on call arrangements.

The Out of Hours Service is contactable by telephoning 111.

Extended hours run by Tynehealth Federation

You can now book an appointment to see a GP, nurse or healthcare assistant in the evening or weekend.

The appointments are available at local “hubs” and they are provided by local doctors and nurses who will have access to your medical notes. These appointments are all prebookable so if you need an appointment in the evening or weekend because you are busy during the week please contact us and we will try and book you into a slot.

If you require an urgent appointment when the surgery is closed then you can telephone            0191 4862195 and you will be offered a GP appointment in one of the four hubs in the local area.

Further information on the services provided by Tynehealth can be found on their website

Due to the current Covid-19 situation we are moving all patients on to Electronic Prescribing. Please nominate your pharmacy next time you ring or if you have access to online services you can do this via the website.  Practice opening hours may be reduced in the future and we may have to keep the doors closed for triaged appointments only so it is vital that you switch from paper prescriptions.

For patients who do not yet have access to online ordering please ring the surgery and we will post you our a username and password. This is a change to normal procedure whilst we are in a health emergency situation.

Housebound

Those patients that are housebound and are unable to make arrangements to have their re-order slip handed in may telephone their request for further medication. Please ring the main surgery telephone number and ask to be put through to the prescription line – this is available after 10.00 am only.
