Operating Areas

We operate a GP Out Of Hours Service across Northumberland, Newcastle, North and South Tyneside & Sunderland.

Patients are encouraged to call 111 if they are seeking urgent advice. If after an initial telephone consultation it is decided that you need to see a clinician face-to-face, you will be referred to one of our centres, or if your condition prevents you from travelling you will be offered a home visit. The appropriate appointment, whether it is a telephone consultation or face-to-face, will be decided via this telephone assessment.

Details of our centre locations are provided below with links to maps, facilities and other useful information.
