Patients registered with a GP Practice in North Tyneside now have another 1,000 appointments with either a doctor (GP), nurse or Health Care Assistants (HCA) available per week.
So, for example, if you are busy during the day and can't get to your doctor, you can now phone your GP practice and ask for an evening appointment (usually up to 7:30pm) or an appointment at other times on a Saturday or Sunday.
Some of these appointments are at hubs (or central locations), but they are all provided by local doctors and nurses and they have full access to your patient notes. It saves going somewhere where they don't have your notes and don't know who you are. PLEASE REMEMBER these are for booked appointments only.
Appointments are generally available at the following times:
Mon-Fri evening 4pm-8pm
Mon, Tues, Thu eve 4pm-8pm
