How to make an appointment

Ring 0191 5658849for Deerness Park or 0191 5193222 for Bunnyhill and ask for either a telephone appointment or a surgery appointment with the doctor or nurse.  The doctor or nurse can even phone you back on your mobile if you need help the same day. Consultations are confidential. Usually we would encourage you to attend with a parent.
Other places that can help include local clinics for young people, and you can often be seen without an appointment. Try these -
