South Tyneside Health Collaboration (Extended Access)


Starting from April 2018 there will be a STEPS clinic every Saturday and Sunday at the surgery. This will be available for all patients who are unable to attend during normal surgery hours. You will be able to see a GP, Nurse and Health Care Assistant in this clinic. This will include chronic disease monitoring, NHS health checks and cervical smears. If you are unable to attend an appointment at our surgery, you will be offered an appointment at another practice.

You MUST book ahead via your practice on the telephone.

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.

To find out more, ask the receptionist, or visit

 If you have an appointment booked in an extended Access clinic and need to cancel on a Weekend please telephone 0191 2541040
