Covid Vaccination Programme
The roll-out of the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme has started in North Tyneside. We will be in touch when it is your turn to be vaccinated. We will ensure that those who need it most will be able to access vaccinations as soon as they are available. Please do not call your GP practice about the vaccine as it prevents other urgent calls getting through. A list of FAQs have been developed across health, social care and voluntary partners which are published on the TyneHealth website, scroll down past the volunteer form:- https://tynehealth.org.uk/covid-19/
Patients of Bridge Medical have been allocated to clinics at the Parks Leisure Centre, North Shields, NE29 6TL, click here to view on a map.
Flu Clinic for 50-64 year old’s
Thank you to everyone that attended our flu clinic on Saturday 12th December. We had a fantastic response from our 50–64 year old patients. We still have a limited stock left for those patients that were unable to attend. Please ring our reception team who will book you an appointment with one of our nursing team.
Only some medical problems are suitable for an eConsult. If you are thinking of contacting your GP surgery this way please check here to see if your GP will be able to deal with your concerns in an eConsult.
Please can all patients and carers consider wearing a face covering while in our practice. For more information on how to use one and who is exempt please click here.
Given the current pandemic, please respect the need for NHS services to remain as safe as possible. Please do not enter the GP surgery unless you have already arranged an appointment with a doctor or nurse. If you need to drop off a prescription, please do so in the box provided. You must attend the surgery alone unless you have a carer. If you choose to wear a face mask, you can find out how to wear a mask and what you can use as a mask here.
If you or someone you live with have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough or a high temperature, stay at home for 7 days. Do not book a GP appointment, call your GP or attend your GP practice. If you live with other people, they should also stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do. Only call 111 direct if you are advised to do so by the online service or cannot go online. For the latest COVID-19 advice please visit www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
