Welcome to Priory Medical Group
Welcome along to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about the healthcare services available at all three of our sites. Find out when we are open and what to do when we are not, all from the comfort of your own home.
Priory Medical Group consists of our main surgery and 2 branches. Our main surgery is based in North Shields with branches in Hadrian Park, Wallsend and Percy Street, Tynemouth.
We are receiving an increased number of telephone calls currently as patients can only attend the practice when they have a face to face appointment. If you have a non-urgent medical condition, please consider sending an e-consultation through the link above, these will be responded to by the end of the next working day.
If you do need to call us for a non-urgent matter, then we would recommend calling after 2pm.
