Booking an Appointment
We offer a range of GP and Practice Nurse appointments throughout the day from early morning to early evening, Monday – Friday.
You can book an appointment over the telephone by ringing the main practice line on 0191 521 0210.
Alternatively you can book on-line, simply by pressing the link at the bottom of this page. (you must register with the practice first for this service, please telephone the surgery and we will be happy to help you). To book an appointment online please click here.
If you have more than one problem please ask for a double appointment so that the doctor can address your problems. Please do not bring a list of problems as the doctor may not have time to deal with them all.
The appointment system has been designed to provide urgent appointments every day. Patients should be aware that they may not always see the doctor of their choice if requesting an urgent appointment. Urgent appointments are for medical emergencies only, they are not for sick notes. Any patient found to be abusing the appointment system will be reviewed and issued with a warning. If you continue you may be removed from the practice list. All urgent appointment requests are triaged by the on-call doctor.
If you feel you will not have to be examined you may also request a telephone consultation where you can speak to the doctor over the telephone rather than coming to the surgery.
Unable to Keep an Appointment
If you are unable to keep an appointment please inform us as soon as possible so that it can be offered to someone who needs to see the GP, please try to give us plenty of time. We aim to give each patient the time they need during consultations and so we may not always keep to time, please help us by being patient.
