We Are Open

We are closed

Below you can find the options available to you until we reopen.

Depending on your needs, calling us may not always be the best option. Patients can access many services digitally, and we may have already answered your query in our questions section.

Out of Hours

If you need non-urgent medical help when we are closed, you should use NHS 111.

Visit NHS 111 or Call NHS 111 (free from all landlines and mobiles).

Trained staff will ask you to explain your issue and provide a course of action. They may give advice, direct you to more information, refer you to another service, or offer an out of hours appointment at a central location.

For urgent but not life-threatening situations such as suspected broken limbs, sprains, cuts, grazes, and minor burns, scalds or head injuries, you can visit an urgent treatment centre or minor injuries unit.

Urgent Care:

UTC (Urgent Treatment Centre) within Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Sheriff Hill
Gateshead
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE9 6SX


If you are unsure of your best option, please use NHS 111 in the first instance.

In an Emergency

You should only call 999 or visit Accident and Emergency if it is a life-threatening emergency.

If someone is having a heart attack or stroke, call 999 immediately. In these situations, every second counts. Other emergencies include loss of consciousness, acute confusion, fits that are not stopping, chest pain, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding that will not stop, severe allergic reactions or severe burns or scalds.
