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.
