Prescription Line

GP Appointments

If you need to discuss more than one problem with the GP, please book a double appointment.




If you want to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse, please phone 0191 251 7139 and speak to a receptionist. If you need to be seen within 24 hours, your call will be triaged. This is so that you can be given the right advice before coming to the surgery. You can not book an appointment with a Doctor more than two weeks in advance.

You can talk to a receptionist by telephone or in person between 08.30-18:30 Monday - Friday

For an urgent appointment on the same day, please ring as early as possible so that you can be assessed by a clinican over the telephone and an appropriate appointment given.  A receptionist will ask a brief description of your symtoms.

Please be aware that our practice in the oxford centre is a branch surgery and will be limited on appointments.

Practice nurses

You can make an appointment with a nurse without seeing the doctor first.


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.
