All patients are seen by appointment only.
We can normally offer you an appointment with the doctor of your choice within 7 working days and with any doctor within working 2 days. We have a system for "on the day availability" to help us to meet the needs of patients with urgent or emergency medical problems. To make an appointment please contact the surgery using the normal surgery number (0345-337-0510) and either select option 2 for the King Street Surgery or option 3 for the Jesmond Surgery. Alternatively you can now book routine doctors appointments on-line.
Although you are free to consult with any doctor, it is normally best to stay with the same doctor for the duration of any problem to ensure continuity of care.
In addition please note that:
If you are unable to keep appointments please let us know as soon as possible so that the appointment can be reallocated. Failing to keep appointments wastes considerable medical and administrative time. Dozens of appointments are “lost” each month because patients simply fail to turn up.
PERSISTENT FAILURE TO ATTEND APPOINTMENTS WILL MEAN YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE PRACTICE LIST.
