If You Need a Doctor When the Surgery is Open: 

Contact the surgery on (0191) 4872656. A receptionist will deal with your enquiry. When the surgery is closed please refer to our ‘Out of Hours’ page. The surgery is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and on Bank Holidays.

For emergencies and urgent problems please telephone the surgery number 0191 487 2656 and follow the advice given.


If your child has became unwell in the last few days and you would like urgent advice please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak with you and if neccessary see your child today. This could save you an unneccessary trip to A&E or walk in centre. Can we also make you aware of the Little Orange Book. This provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children. Ask your reception team for a copy.
