Welcome to the Nelson Medical Group Website
Through this website we hope to improve our services to all our patients and enable you to find the information required at the click of a mouse.
Christmas & New Year
Nelson Medical Group will be open as usual on the run up to and through the seasonal period with the exceptions of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. Please note a walk-in GP Service will be available to our patients at Priory Medical Group, Albion Road, North Shields, NE29 0HT (a 2 minute walk from the Surgery), from 9am until 5pm on Boxing Day, Saturday the 27th December and Sunday the 28th December. Please ensure that you request your repeat medication in advance. Should you become ill during the periods that we are closed please contact 111 for advice or in an emergency situation dial 999.
We wish you all Happy and Healthy Christmas!!
Ambulance Booking for Routine and Same Day Appointments
Please note that as of the 8th December 2014 all patient transport requests have to be made by the patient, family member or carer directly with the Patient Transport Services (PTS) on 0191 650 0560.
Book Your Appointments Online
We have a new booking and prescription webiste. Please ask a receptionist to register you to access this service. Once registered the receptionist will give you information to create your user name and password. This service is available 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Please remember to allow 48 WORKING HOURS FOR ALL PRESCRIPTIONS.
You can also find out information about medical conditions and diseases through our patient information leaflets as well as keep up to date with all the latest practice news and developments. You can also allow the nurses to collect travel information by using the Travel Form.
Leaflets can be obtained by using the NHS Choices link at the bottom of the page and accessing Health A-Z.
We are always looking to improve our services so please fill in our patient survey or leave some feedback on our contact page. We hope that with your help and co-operation we will be able to make this website a better portal for all your online needs.
Remember to Cancel.
We are very concerned about our Did Not Attend (DNA) rate, wasting hours of doctor and nurse time and appointments that are needed for our patients. If you have any suggestions about how to reduce our DNA rate we would be pleased to receive them.
