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
All patients are requested to nominate their preferred pharmacy so that all medication requests can be sent to them direct via 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.
For patients who do not yet have access to online ordering please attend surgery with a form of photographic id (passport or driving license) and ask to complete an online services application form. We will then post you out the username and password needed to access our services.
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. TELEPHONE REQUESTS ARE STRICTLY FOR PATIENTS WHO ARE ON THE PRACTICE HOUSEBOUND REGISTER
