Coronavirus Update

Please note we are no longer offering face to face appointments. All appointments will be telephone triage only.

Stay at home for 14 days if you have either:
A high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
A new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

A change or loss in smell/taste (Updated 19.5.2020)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home. Read the advice about staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 14 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

NEW: Coronavirus app from the Government

A new Coronavirus Status Checker has been launched that will help the NHS coordinate its response and build up additional data on the COVID-19 outbreak. People with potential coronavirus symptoms are now being asked to complete the status checker and answer a short series of questions which will tell the NHS about their experience.

Repeat Prescriptions

If you take medication on a long-term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription in any of the following ways:-

  • Telephone (0191) 285 1119 between 10:00am and 17:00pm
  • Drop the tear-off part of a previous prescription into the box provided in reception or at the Reception desk.
  • Prescriptions can also be ordered online by clicking on the link at the top of this page. A login will be required for this service – details of how to sign up are available from reception.

Please order prescriptions twenty four hours in advance. Prescriptions ordered on a Friday will be available the following Monday. Please take into consideration any Bank Holidays when ordering Prescriptions also.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
