GP2Pharmacy

Fixed time appointments with pharmacy colleagues


What is GP2Pharmacy?

GP2Pharmacy is a new initiative to make additional appointments with healthcare professionals available to patients in South Tyneside.

There is increasing pressure on GPs which sometimes means that patients may not get an appointment quickly. Our GP and Pharmacy Colleagues are working together to ensure that patients with symptoms and conditions that can be treat by professionally qualified Pharmacists, are seen quickly. This could often be the same day or next day, depending on when you contact us.


What this means for patients

GP2Pharmacy appointments suitable for certain symptoms and conditions. 


Which GP practices are involved?

Presently there are 10 GP practices involved in the GP2Pharmacy pilot throughout South Tyneside.

We hope that after September 2019, we will be able to extend this service to all pharmacies in the area. Practices currently offering GP2Pharmacy appointments:
