In addition to general medical consultations the practice offers a number of clinics and services:
Disease Prevention and Monitoring Clinics - regular clinics for chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma COPD and high blood pressure, are run by the practice nurses.
Ante-natal clinics - held once a week as follows:
North Shields on Thursday morning
Tynemouth on Friday morning
Hadrian Park on Monday morning
Our Midwife Anna Dodds will be starting on 20.2.23
Routine vaccinations - including tetanus, flu and pneumococcal vaccination.
Travel Health - During Covid we had to put our travel health clinic on hold. We are starting to get this back up and running. Please call reception to advise where and when you are travelling. This information will then be sent to our group of nurses who will assess and get back in touch.
If you requirement is urgent, we recommend and direct patients to private travel health providers such as Boots and Superdrug. Here they will assess which vaccines and precautions one needs to take according to which country they plan to visit. Some of these vaccines are available on the NHS if you are due a booster e.g. Tetanus. Please provide our nursing team with a list of which NHS vaccines you think you may require following a private assessment and they will review your medical record.
Minor surgery and joint injections - minor operations and joint injections are done by doctors and Physician associates at our Tynemouth Surgery via internal referral.
Counselling - We do not have resident counsellors in the surgery. The doctors are able to give you information about self help programmes. We have primary care mental health nurses who work within the surgery that can help with a wide range of problems including anxiety, low mood, bereavement and stress.
We can direct you to self referral to the North Tyneside Talking Therapy service :
The doctors work with the local community mental health team and psychiatric service to ensure all mental health needs are met.
