GP provision in urgent and emergency care
We work as part of a healthcare alliance to provide a GP service in emergency departments (ED), walk-in centres, and urgent treatment centres (UTCs) of Newcastle.
Alongside, VOCARE, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NUTH) and North East Ambulance Services NHS Foundation Trust (NEAS) we are part of the Newcastle Urgent Care Access Alliance.
The alliance began in June 2019 with services in the walk-in centres at Molineux Street, Ponteland Road, Lemington and in the emergency department (ED) of the Royal Victoria Infirmary.
Our urgent access contract now provides extended access for primary care across the city. Patients can see GPs from 8am to 10pm Monday to Sunday, 365 days of the year.
