About Us

We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being. Please find further information below, about our Practice, which we hope you will find useful.

Wallsend is approximately three miles east of Newcastle along the river Tyne and historically has been a ship building community. This industry has waxed and waned over the years but other large industries have brought fresh employment into the area.

North Tyneside is also the site for other developments and there has been a steady expansion of new housing with an influx of new younger families.

The practice premises are situated close to the centre of Wallsend.

Baby Friendly

We are a baby-friendly Practice. You are welcome to breastfeed your baby; we have a dedicated parent and baby room available.

Teen Friendly

We aim to offer services which are ‘teenage-friendly’.

In summary, this means that:

  • We welcome teenagers and aim to put them at ease when they come to the practice
  • We can assure teenagers that confidentiality will be maintained if aged 12-16, and they ask to keep details of their consultations confidential or if they consult us about potentially sensitive issues
  • Teenagers are welcome to see a Doctor on their own if they wish and are aged 12-16. We would however advise them to come with an adult where possible.

Sexual health advice is available, as is advice on other issues such as depression, drugs, alcohol and self-harm and we can advise teenagers about emergency contraception if required.
