Emergency Appointments – Triage Appointments
- If you feel you need to be seen on the day please contact the surgery BY PHONE, your details and symptoms will be taken and logged in a triage appointment. When you ring you must be able to supply the surgery with a current telephone number for you to be contacted on. You will be contacted by a GP who will assess your needs and if necessary you will be given an appointment time to attend the Blyth Acute Service which is in the entrance of the Blyth Community Hospital.
• This service is provided jointly by all staff from Railway Medical Group, therefore you may not speak or be seen by a GP of your choice.
• Patients are asked NOT to come down to the surgery or to the Acute Centre without an appointment. You will need to ring the surgery to be put on the triage list before you are seen.
You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.
Please be sure to contact the practice to check your results such as blood tests, urine tests, x-rays and ECGs. Receptionists can inform you of results (at the doctor’s discretion) but cannot discuss or interpret your results. To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed

An out of hours service is not provided by the Practice. For an out of hours service, ring your practice telephone number and you will be directly connected to Northern Doctors or you can ring the Northern Doctors Out of Hours Service direct on 111 www.northern-doctors.org
