- Dr Ash retirement: Dr Ash retired from the practice on Monday 23.4.18. We wish her all the best in her retirement… and who knows she may help us out with the odd locum shift here and there
- Temporary List Closure: We have been trying hard to recruit a new GP to replace Dr Ash however GP recruitment in the NHS is really difficult and as yet we have been unsuccessful. For this reason NHS England and South Tyneside CCG have agreed that our practice list will remain closed until further notice – this means we regret that we are unable to accept new patients or temporary residents until further notice
- Wednesday Late Night Surgeries: Based on all of the above, we regret that we have been unable to sign up to continue to provide late night appointments on Wednesday evenings. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Our practice is part of South Tyneside Health Collaboration and if you would prefer an early morning, late night or weekend appointment you can be seen at another local surgery. Please take a look at our “Appointments” section for further information
Our Practice is highly patient focused and we aim to deliver the best care for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with that of other healthcare professionals and voluntary organisations where appropriate.
We provide modern health care facilities and focus on continually improving the health of our patients and residents of the community.
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided.
All patients now have Dr McManus as their named GP – unless you have requested Dr Ash. Please note you will always be offered an appointment with either GP at the surgery.
Sharing your information
To ensure you receive the most comprehensive treatment, we share information with other healthcare professionals when needed. All healthcare professionals are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as our own staff. If you wish to opt out of this then please contact the surgery.
