Patient Access

OVER THE PHONE

Please call 0191 300 9889. All the doctors and nurses work to appointments. Demand for appointments has increased over the years and we are still trying to keep up with the demand and have made major changes to the appointment system to provide a faster and better service. There are 2 types of appointment:

  • Routine Appointments - Routine appointments are available and can be pre-booked up to 8 weeks in advance with the doctor or nurse of your choice. These are for non-urgent matters and for patients who prefer to have continuity by seeing the doctor or nurse who has been looking after an on-going problem.
  • Rapid Access Appointments - Every day the doctors have appointments that are available on the day.  These are both morning and afternoon appointments.  You can book one of these appointments by calling us at 7.30am or 8.30am (depending on the day). Please note Rapid Access Appointments are not available online.

Cancellations

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. ALL DNAs (Did Not Attend) are recorded manually and electronically as recommended by The Department of Health in order to help us reduce the resources wasted as a result of DNAs. We would appreciate your help with this.
