A great many North Tyneside practices can help you plan your family, through contraception.  Your practice reception team can tell you about it.  Please ask.

And remember, teenagers can usually have an appointment with the GP or nurse without your parent, and you can bring a friend if it makes you feel more comfortable.  Your notes and your conversations with the GP are confidential and only used for delivering patient care.

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.
