Do you really need to see a GP? Can the Pharmacist help?

Minor ailment scheme

Most pharmacies also run a minor ailment scheme for common health problems like aches and pains, skin conditions and stomach upsets. For more information click on link Pharmacy information

Check with your pharmacy to see if they run a minor ailment scheme, the pharmacist will be able to assess your needs, give you advice, suggest medicines if appropriate, and refer you to a GP if necessary.

When pharmacies provide medicines as part of a minor ailment scheme, you get the medicines on the NHS. 

If you normally pay a prescription charge, the charge will apply.  If you're exempt from prescription charges - if you're under 16 or over 60, for example, if you have a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) - you won't pay for the medicine.


Triage team are available each morning to discuss any concern you may have regarding your child and we offer urgent appointments each day during our working hours.  This saves you attending A&E or a walk in centre.  It is more appropriate for you to attend your GP surgery.   You can also access free advice from 111 service 24 hours a day.  This is a Freephone number from landlines and mobiles.  NHS Choices website also has helpful information available (click on our link Children & Young People).

You may also find information in the Little Orange Book useful which is available from Reception or you can ask your HV for a copy.  The book covers common minor illness, treatment and also times to seek medical assistance.  You can also download a copy

GP extended access

Triage Nurses are now able to book our registered patients into extended access GP appointments. The GP Hub's are situated at:

  • Molineux Street
  • Ponteland Road Walk in Centre
  • Westgate Road 

The appointments are with local GPs and are pre-booked for you (so no need to sit and wait).  For more information click GP extended hours access hub 

Accountable / Named GP for all patients

The practice is required by the government under terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients to a named accountable GP.  If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionist when you are next in the surgery.

Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice and will not have an effect on your care.  Your named GP will not be available at all times.
