Clinics & Services
In additiion to general medical consultations the practice offers a number of clinics and services:
Disease Prevention and Monitoring Clinics - regular clinics for chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma COPD and high blood pressure, are run by the practice nurses.
Ante-natal clinics - held once a week as follows:
- North Shields Wednesday afternoons from 13:30

Contraception - we offer a full range of contraception services including coil fitting and removal, implants and injections, prescribing the contraceptive pill and emergency contraception. Dr Wills is a member of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and offers in depth advice regarding family planning and fitting of longer acting contraceptives. She, and several other doctors, also hold the Diploma of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists so we are fluent in women’s health, an important area of general practice.
Routine vaccinations - including tetanus, flu and pneumococcal vaccination.
Minor surgery and joint injections - minor operations and joint injections are done by the doctor each Tuesday morning at our Tynemouth Surgery via referral.
Musculo skeletal clinic - clinics are run each Tuesday and Thursday via referral from your doctor.
Counselling - We provide access to many types of counselling at Priory. The doctors are able to give you information about self help programmes (including the working upstream project). We have counsellors who work within the surgery that can help with a wide range of problems including anxiety, low mood, bereavement and stress. We are also able to offer referrals to the psychology service, which includes CBT and sessions with a psychologist. Most of this is done within the surgery.
The doctors work with the local community mental health team and psychiatric service to ensure all mental health needs are met.
