Need to make an appointment for weekends and evenings?
You can now book a GP (family doctor) appointment over the weekend or evening at a GP centre in South Tyneside from 1st September 2017.
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.
Who is providing this service?
A new company called South Tyneside Health Collaboration has been asked by the local clinical commissioning group (CCG), the NHS organisation who pay for health services in South Tyneside, to run the service.
This company is formed from 16 GP practices in South Tyneside, and will work with all 22 practices in the area to make sure that patients are able to book appointments.
How do I get an appointment?
You can get an appointment by calling your normal GP practice during normal working hours. You may be asked some questions to check that it is the best service for your needs. All patients will have a 15 minute booked appointment slot. If you are late it may not be possible to see you in that session and you will need a new appointment.
