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 staff from Station Medical and Waterloo Medical Groups, 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.
