Appointments

Patients’ are allotted a 10 minute slot with our clinicians unless otherwise specified. Longer appointments may be required for annual reviews.

Appointments can be made by:

>Calling at reception

>Telephoning during surgery opening hours

>Online via Emis Access by clicking HERE

You can see any doctor at the practice, not just the one with whom you are registered. We would encourage you to follow through an illness with the same doctor.

We release urgent appointments daily to allow people to get a same day appointment which involves ringing or coming into surgery at 8:30am on the morning you wish to be seen.

Evening and Weekend Appointments

We now have additional appointments available at a time to suit you – after 6.30pm on weekdays and also on Saturdays and Sundays through the day. Bank holidays are also covered by this new initiative. This has been organised by us, in partnership with other practices in North Tyneside. These appointments are all pre-bookable so, if you need an appointment in the evening or the weekend because you are busy during the week, then please continue to arrange it through your own GP practice. Many of these appointments will available on the same day that you call your practice if you need to make an appointment to be seen quickly.

We have appointments until 8pm every weekday and on Saturdays and Sundays, to see a doctor (GP), nurse or Health Care Assistant. Some of these appointments are at hubs or central locations to suit you, but they are all provided by local doctors and nurses and they have full access to your patient notes. Please remember to ask your practice administration team.

If you are calling to arrange an appointment at the weekend, please call the team at Battle Hill Health Centre on 0191 295 8520 and they will be happy to help.
