The appointments may be at this surgery or another in South Tyneside. When offered an appointment elsewhere please do make sure you know where it is - staff will be able to give you the full address, and if we have a valid mobile phone number can text you the date, time, address and postcode. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT PLEASE CONTACT US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO ENABLE US TO OFFER IT TO SOMEONE ELSE - either via the practice or 0191 254 1040 during service hours.
