Appointments

The New North Health Centre offers Advanced Access which means that patients can request appointments on the same day or for the next working day. Due to current pandemic measures, to reduce the risk of spreading the Coronavirus Infection, all our appointments are initially via a telephone consultation. Patients will be seen face-to-face if the GP feels it is appropriate to do so.

Genuine emergencies will always be seen on the same day, but less urgent cases maybe postponed until the next surgery, at the doctor's discretion.

Appointments are for 10 minutes.

Patients who need assistance with English or with sign language can be provided with an interpreter. Please allow as much notice as possible for appointments requiring interpreters.

The practice is accessible to disabled patients and there is wheelchair access. We share premises with the pharmacy and there are steps between the two sites. Please take care when attending.

Making an appointment

You can make an appointment by giving us a phone call.  You can also use our online service to make certain appointments - for more information click here.

Evening and Weekend Appointments

We are here for you evening and weekends and we want to make it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you. Evening and weekend appointments are available for our patients, in addition to our normal opening hours. These evening and weekend appointments may take place by phone, video, or face-to-face depending on your clinical need.

You may be offered an appointment at your GP practice, another local GP practice or another local NHS service.  This is because we are working with other local GP practices to provide these appointments. Our practice is part of a small group of practices called a Primary Care Network. This group of practices works together in a number of ways.

To book an appointment

Contact your GP practice in the usual way (by phone or online or in person) to request an appointment. If your practice is closed and you need support, please contact NHS 111 (by phone or online: 111.nhs.uk).
