Update 

'Practices are open, The pandemic still means precautions continue reducing our capacity to see face to face patients. All practices are ensuring those patients who need face to face appointments get them. Government mandate precautions continue in the NHS such as social distancing in waiting rooms. This means we can not offer all patients directly book face to face appointments. Many are finding that telephone appointments and e-consults (available from practice websites) are meeting their needs in a much more convenient way allowing those limited numbers of face to face appointments to be used by those who need them. We thank everyone for their understanding at this time of great pressure for the NHS.

The BMA (British Medical Association) recommends infection control measures remain in place in healthcare settings.   We will therefore continue to ask staff and patients to wear masks/face coverings.  This is to protect vulnerable patients and staff, particularly with increasing COVID numbers nationally and locally.  

We will continue to adhere to social distancing in our waiting rooms.

Thank you for our cooperation.

THE LITTLE ORANGE BOOK

Our babies and children are so precious to us. When they're unwell, we worry about what's wrong and what we can do to help them. We want them to get better as soon as possible.

The Little Orange Book contains advice and tips on how to manage common illnesses and problems that babies and young children often experience in the first 5 years of their lives. It also has information on more serious conditions, what to look out for and how to get help.

This book was produced by Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group with invaluable help from GP's, Health Visitor's, Practice Managers and Staff, Pharmacists, Paediatricians, Children's Nurses and Parents and Carers.

Parenting can be a fantastically rewarding experience but has also been described as 'the hardest job in the world'.

We hope The Little Orange Book makes this job a little bit easier.

When you are next in the practice pick up a copy of The Little Orange Book from reception to keep at home.

If your child has become unwell in the last few days and you would like advice then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak to you and if necessary see your child, today - this could save you an unnecessary trip to A + E or a Walk-in Centre.
