We offer a selection of appointment types to suit everyone:
Routine appointments - you can book in advance to see any of the healthcare team either in person at the suregry or over the telephone.
Urgent appointments - for problems that cannot wait until the next day
Telephone Consultations - If you need to discuss a problem with the doctor or practice nurse by telephone we are happy for you to do this. Appointments can be made in person at the surgery or by phoning 0191 236 2366. You will be called back as close to the arranged time as possible.
Please note the availability of any specific GP will be dependent on holidays and other commitments.
Late Appointments - Where possible, we offer pre-bookable late appointments after 5pm, which can be booked 7 days in advance.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many ailments and you may be seen more quickly.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
