Booking Appointments:

If you want to make an appointment with a Doctor or a Nurse, please telephone the main surgery number (0191 215 0141) and speak to a Receptionist. 

We aim to offer: –

  • Urgent appointments with any GP within 48 hours of the request
  • Routine appointments with a GP of choice within 5 working days
  • Pre-bookable routine GP appointment (up to 3 month in advance)
  • Urgent and routine appointments with the Nursing Team

Cancelling Appointments:

Patients have rights and responsibilities, including keeping appointments.

Missed appointments cost the NHS thousands of pounds every year.  Please inform the surgery as soon as possible if you are unable to attend for an appointment.  This will help us to make appointments available to as many patients as possible.
