As from April 2015, practices are required under their contract with NHS England to allocate a named GP to all patients, who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides for them.
HOWEVER, you can still see the GP of your choice, whenever you need to see a doctor – you don’t have to see your named accountable GP if you prefer not to.
New patients will be informed of their accountable GP on registration.
We are currently looking for patients to join our Patient Participation Group to help us improve how we provide care and service to everyone. The group needs to be a broad cross-section of patients by way of age, ethnicity etc.
If you are interested in joining our group or to find out more about TyneHealth, please download and complete our leaflet and return to our Saville Place or Newbiggin Hall surgeries.
Join our group
We asked patients to complete a patient satisfaction survey to help us improve the services we offer and to get your views on local Accident and Emergency Services. We were absolutely delighted with the response we received.
