Help and Support from a GP during Covid-19

If you need to contact a GP, do not go into the surgery in person.
You can:

Your GP surgery will then give you advice about what to do.

A phone or video call with a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional may be booked for you.

You’ll only be asked to visit the surgery if absolutely necessary.

Your GP surgery may be very busy at the moment.  So you may have to wait longer than usual to speak to someone if it’s not urgent.

You can also find contact information for all North Tyneside practices here.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

Shopping for basic necessities, for example, food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible.

One form of exercise, for example, a run, walk or cycle- alone or with members of your household.

Any medical need, or to provide care or help to a vulnerable person.

Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
