Use the buttons above and "Quick Links" to the right to find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, learn about our services and ethos, and catch up on our latest news.
We are a welcoming practice and we strive always to provide the best possible care for our patients.
Coronavirus remains active in our community. We kindly ask patients to wear a mask or face covering when in the surgery building. Please do not come to the surgery if you have tested positive for coronavirus or have symptoms of coronavirus unless asked to do so by a doctor.
If you are unwell and need help during surgery opening hours, then please phone the surgery on 0191 3770340 (0191 3770215 if urgent) and explain to the receptionist, they will get a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner to call you back. If it is out of hours, then access 111 either online or by phone. 111: NHS 111 Online; 119 To arrange a test
For all other GP problems, or for results or nurse appointments, please either use the NHS App (NHS App) or phone the surgery on 0191 3770340.
Remember you can also phone your favourite pharmacy for advice on medicines and minor ailments.
We apologise for any delays or inconvenience caused by the severe pressure on appointments during the pandemic.
Our registered patients can order a repeat prescription, see their medical records and test results online. The best way to access this information is via the NHS App. For security and confidentiality reasons users must register and these services are password protected.
Many problems can be dealt with via an e-Consult, but DO NOT use e-consult for any urgent matter or if you are at all concerned there may be a serious cause for your symptoms. An e-consult sent on Friday WILL NOT BE SEEN till Monday, or Tuesday on Bank Holidays. Please use 111 over weekends and Bank Holidays! The e-Consultation system is designed to help patients get a quick and easy solution to relatively minor and straightforward requests or problems, which will usually be of an administrative nature. It is not suitable for carrying out a clinical consultation which might need discussion, explanation and examination. If you have a medical problem you need to speak to the doctor or nurse about, and especially if any examination will be required, please do not send an e-Consult request. This will take time to respond to. Instead, phone to make an appointment for a telephone or in-person consultation, in the usual way.
We love to hear from our patients; sending us your comments is also just a click away
