Welcome to The Whickham Practice
During the pandemic and for the forseeable future all initial appointments with doctors, nurse practitioner and other health care professionals will be on the telephone. This is to comply with NHS England advice.
Our receptionists will take a few details to arrange your call with the most appropriate person to help you.
Due to the extreme demand on our service we will only be able to try to call you once or at the most twice so please keep your phone by you. We will do our best to call within 1 hour of your appointment time. This may be earlier or later depending on availability of staff.
Patient confidentiality is our priority, we are therefore unable to book appointments at the reception desk, please ring the surgery to arrange an appointment.
If you are late for your appointment, you may not be seen and could be asked to reschedule your appointment.
