TyneHealth, together with the four Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and North Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), are continuing our COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
We are still looking for individuals to volunteer with the vaccine roll out across North Tyneside.
TyneHealth was founded in 2006 and became the North Tyneside GP Federation in 2014, representing all of the practices in North Tyneside.
Together with our GP members, we deliver improved health care in the community to over 215,000 residents, by bringing care closer to patients’ homes.
We work in partnership with commissioners, local hospitals, the third sector and our patients to provide community based, medically-led services.
The North Tyneside borough is split into four Primary Care Networks (PCN) – groups of GP practices working together for their local communities – as indicated on the map.
COVID-19 has been the single greatest public health emergency in the history of the NHS. We’ve created an information hub where you can find details on what TyneHealth is doing in regards to the pandemic, including:
Please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives – that means staying at home as much as possible and following the ‘hands, face, space’ guidance when you are out.
Please don’t contact your GP practice to seek a vaccine, they will contact you
When you are invited, please be sure to attend your booked appointments.
Please attend your appointment on your own. If you need assistance, please bring only one person with you. If we have more people attending, it is difficult for us to maintain social distancing.
Patients registered with a GP Practice in North Tyneside now have 1,000 extra appointments with either a GP, nurse or Health Care Assistant.
FPS is designed to proactively identify patients – who potentially have issues that would otherwise have gone unchecked – to stop them from falling.
