If you would like to contact your doctor, fill in an eConsultation and you will get a reply within 48 hours of submitting your eConsultation between Monday and Friday.
Once the eConsultation has been submitted you will get a phone call or text from your GP and they will make the clinical decision whether you need to be seen face to face and you will get a phone call back from a receptionist with a time and date.
GP2Pharmacy is a new approach to getting an appointment with a health care professional.
How does this work?
GP2Pharmacy works by contacting us and asking to see the pharmacy for a fixed time appointment. The pharmacy staff are qualified and trained to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions.
These include things like:
- sore throats
- chest infections
- urine infections
- blood pressure readings
- and more
You can chose ANY pharmacy to go to in South Tyneside. The one that suits you best, maybe next to work, or home. It doesn’t have to be your usual pharmacy.
You should be seen as soon as possible mostly in the same day of requesting the appointment depending on what time you request it.
