THINK WHY A&E

Why wait for hours in A&E for something your GP can treat.

A&E departments treat patients with serious or life-threatening illnesses and injuries, so you should only call 999 or visit A&E when your situation is an emergency. Using a more appropriate service will save you time and could save lives.

Emergencies

In case of an ’emergency’ or when the surgery is closed, you have below options available to you:

  • If your problem is an emergency or life threatening, please call 999.
  • If you require information on symptoms or need medical advice, please call 111.

Every day of the year 24/7 you can access the Urgent Care Hub’ at South Tyneside Hospital (this is the relocation of Jarrow Walk In Centre).  You do not need an appointment.

Pharmacyyou can call into your local late night open pharmacy who may be able to offer advice or recommend treatment.
