The pandemic is not over
You may have noticed some changes to the way your GP practice operates.
These changes have been made to ensure the NHS can see everyone, safely.
For primary care staff, the pandemic is not over.
Our health services are under enormous pressure, but we are open and here to see you safely.
Please continue to show respect to all healthcare staff and settings.
Since the pandemic, GP services have evolved.
There are now a variety of ways you can access help from your local practice, including telephone appointments, video consultations, E-consult as well as face-to-face appointments and home visits.
As we approach winter, health services remain under enormous pressure.
Check out our handy poster for just some of the ways we are working differently, to keep seeing our community safely.
Your NHS is here to see you, safely.
Thank you for your patience.

It means information recorded about your health such is illnesses, hospital admissions and treatments can be accessed by different people who are involved in your care. Previously, different hospitals, GPs and other health workers record separate pieces of information about you, which wasn't easily shared.
By sharing this information with the Great North Care Record, health and care workers can access the most current details about you 24/7. This can help them make choices about your care, as they know more about you.
