Please can we have a moment of your time to tell us about the service we provide. You can complete the Friends and Family test online or in the Practice and we do appreciate your feedback.
We are having an increasing number of patients not attending booked appointments in the surgery. Please cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend
Please note that not all form filling is covered under the NHS therefore there will be a charge for medical insurance reports, certificate signing, passport signing, general medicals and any other non NHS work.
We are currently reviewing our charges and will produce an up to date list soon which will be available at reception.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.
Please call in to collect a Travel Vaccination questionnaire to be filled in and returned to surgery prior to a appointment being given.
It is important to do this as early as possible - at least 6 weeks
These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.
This is because not all travel vaccination is included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore is a chargeable service.
If you leave your vaccinations late we may not be able to give you an appointment in time, if this is the case we aim to inform you asap and you may choose to contact -
Newcastle Medical Centre, within Boots the Chemist
Hotspur Way, Eldon Square
Newcastle Upon Tyne

The practice would like to thank all patients who have responded so positively to invitations to participate in research studies offered via the practice. Research is vital to healthcare in terms of the way conditions are managed and drug development and is something which we are keen to support. We realise and appreciate that participation is not for everyone and we do not mind if anyone refuses an invitation.
Did you know that many people turn up to casualty in Hexham and then simply decide they can't wait any longer? In doing this patients trigger a charge of £59. We offer a minor injuries service at the practice during normal working hours - please call or ask at reception for more information.
Appointments are available at all times in advance with named doctors therefore please try to book in advance as this helps us to manage the same day urgent demand better and reduces your disappointment when trying to see a specific doctor about a pre-existing condition.
Have you thought about registering with us for Patient Access? Many patients are now using the system to make appointments directly with the GP of their choice in advance. If you are interested please download an application form and we will send your registration details out to you ASAP. If you are not sure and would welcome a demo of the system pop in and have a chat with Shona or Jane who will only be too pleased to help you.
