Welcome to Sunniside Surgery

Our mission at Sunniside Surgery is to work as a team, providing our patients with a high quality service at all times. 

 We are here for GP face to face and telephone appointments. Patients can also book in with the nurse for procedures such as smears, annual reviews, NHS health checks and much more.

If unsure please contact reception.

We also encourage patients to make use of the online services such as e-Consult and Patient Access for more flexibility and to assist the admin team.

There are appointments with the GP to book on-line for both face to face and the telephone.  


On Wednesday the 12th of June the surgery is having a new phone system installed . Therefore , there may be slight disruption to our service .

We thank you for your understanding

MMR Vaccine

MMR vaccine protects against three infections measles, mumps and rubella. These are viral infections that can quickly spread to unprotected children and adults, they spread more easily than flu or the common cold. The objective of the immunisation programme is to provide two doses of MMR vaccine at appropriate intervals for all eligible individuals.

Contact the practice to check your MMR status. 

Covid booster

Covid Spring Booster

We still have clinics running for eligible groups for the spring booster vaccination here at Sunniside Surgery 

COVID-19 vaccines are normally given seasonally, but some people with a severely weakened immune system may need additional protection at other times. This may be because of a health condition or medical treatment.

The NHS will contact you if your NHS record suggests you may be eligible for a seasonal spring COVID-19 vaccine.

You may be offered a spring COVID-19 vaccine from April 2024 if you:

  • are aged 75 years old or over
  • live in a care home for older adults
  • are aged 6 months old or over and have a weakened immune system

When available, there will be different ways to get a seasonal COVID-19 vaccine:

  • booking online
  • going to a walk in COVID-19 vaccination site
  • through a local NHS service, such as a GP surgery
  • through your care home

Contact the practice for more information or to book an appointment at the surgery if eligible.
