Sunniside Surgery

Making an Appointment

We can usually offer routine appointments within 2 working days of request. If you feel your problem is urgent and you need to be seen on the same day, then please stress this to the Receptionist who will give you an appointment for that day.

Routine appointments are for medical problems. If you need an insurance or work medical report or examination, please inform the Receptionist so that sufficient time can be given to you for this.



Same day help for your poorly child

If your child has become unwell in the last few days and you would like urgent advice, then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a doctor to speak to you and if necessary to see your child today.  This will save you an unnecessary trip to A&E or a Walk in Centre.  Can we also make you aware of the Little Orange Book, which provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children. 

Ask at reception or your GP for a copy or view it online http://www.newcastlegatesheadccg.nhs.uk/little-orange-book/.
