Extended Access to Primary Care

FROM 1ST SEPTEMBER 2017 patients registered in this practice can obtain early morning, late evening, weekend and bank holiday appointments.

This is called the South Tyneside Extended Primary Care Service or STEPS. A small number of specific surgeries will be open on different days and times to create more options for patients.

You MUST book ahead via your practice either in person or by telephone

All routine appointments with a GP, Nurse or Health Care Professional can be accommodated. Healthcare staff who see and treat you may be from another location and a different local practice.

We are unable to take blood samples at these appointments or provide health treatment such as vaccines for foreign travel, where a payment would normally be required.
