When to see a GP


If you notice something that isn't normal for you or if you have any of the possible signs and symptoms of cancer, please book an appointment with us online or call us on 0191 488 5555. One of our GPs will examine you and they might refer you for tests or to a specialist. 


Try not to be worried or embarrassed to attend your appointment. Our Doctors are here to put you at ease and discuss any problems you may have, everything you tell your GP is confidential. 


Please don't delay booking in your appointment. Your worries are unlikely to go away unless you discuss your symptoms with a doctor. Your symptoms may not be due to cancer, but if they are, you will have a higher chance of successful treatment if it's picked up earlier. 


You won't be wasting any of our doctor's time.
