COVID Update: in line with other NHS providers and due to low levels of Covid, staff and patients are no longer required to wear face masks in surgery. However, it is personal choice, you can wear a mask if you wish to continue to do so. We also ask that you wear a face mask if you are attending surgery and have respiratory symptoms.
Welcome to The Whickham Practice
The practice are now offering face to face or telephone appointments.
When contacting the surgery, our receptionists will take a few details to ensure that you are booked 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 if you have a telephone appointment, 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.
We are part of the Gateshead Inner West Primary Care Network. Please click here to view our website and find out more about the services we offer as a PCN.
