Our Practice is highly patient focused and we have a multidisciplinary approach to patients’ health care. We aim to deliver the best for our patients by combining the skills of the Practice Team with other health and social care workers in the community.
We provide modern health care facilities and focus on continually improving the health of our patients and residents of the community.
This website is aimed at providing you with the important information about our practice, our services and our staff in addition to some other useful information and tools available for you to use. Please have a look around and send us any comments or suggestions if you like. We can use your comments and ideas to improve our online services and develop the content of this site accordingly.
A “healthy lifestyle” is what we recommend:
Eat a balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg
Keep alcohol intake within recommended limits
From April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them. If you don’t know who your named GP is please contact the surgery and the receptionist will be more than happy to inform you.
“We would like the views of people aged 18+ who look after someone unpaid who may be sick, have a physical or learning disability, mental ill health, frailty, or a drug or alcohol problem. This may be a child, partner, parent or other family member, friend or neighbour. You may be providing care to them on a daily basis or caring from a distance. Whatever your circumstances we want to hear about the things that are working well for you and the things that aren’t, so that we can plan for what you need to help you care well and look after your own physical & emotional health and wellbeing. The information you give us is anonymous and will only be used for the purpose of developing a new Carers Strategy for South Tyneside. If you would like further information, advice and support about your caring role, please contact South Tyneside Adult Carers Service (STACS) on 0191 4061531 or South Tyneside Council on 0191 4246000. We will publish the results of our survey during March on the Council’s website at: www.southtyneside.gov.uk Thank you”.
