Other Local NHS Services

As well as our practice, there are many other local NHS services you can contact for health advice, information or treatment.


Your Local Pharmacist

Your local pharmacist can give you free health advice at any time - you don't need an appointment. The Pharmacy First scheme means that if you are entitled to free prescriptions you can get medication free for a range of minor ailments directly from the pharmacy and might save yourself a wait in the surgery.

Accident and Emergency / 999

Whatever the day or time, if you or someone else experiences severe chest pain, severe loss of blood or a suspected stroke, go to your nearest accident and emergency department or call 999.

Newcastle General Hospital Walk-in Centre
