Appointments System

At Marsh House we operate an appointment only system, we do not offer a drop - in service.

All appointments with our GPs are a telephone appointment initially, with the posibility of a video call consultation to assess your clinical needs. If the GP needs to see you face to face a time will be arranged with you to attend the surgery.

Appointments with our nurses are also pre booked and vary between telephone reviews and face to face appointments.

Appointments can be made using the online booking link at the top of the page, you can also telephone 01642 561282 to make an appointment.

Alternativly you can also use our E-Consult feature which is half way down the home page of the website. This is a simple to use form and you will receive a phone call or email reply within 2 working days.

We would appreciate it if you could avoid calls for routine appointments between the hours of 08:00 and 10:30 unless for an emergency, home visit request or cancellation.

Urgent appointments - patients needing urgent medical attention will be offered an urgent same day appointment. PLEASE NOTE The Doctor will only review the 1 urgent matter in an urgent appointment slot. Any other non - urgent matters will need a seperate appointment.

Please note that we are closed for staff training every Thursday from 12 noon until 14:00.

Training Practice

Marsh House Medical Practice is a GP training practice. Qualified doctors (Registrars) work alongside regular GP’s whilst training to become general practitioners themselves.

You will be made aware when an appointment with the registrar is offered and written consent will be sought before and after any video consultation.

We also link with Newcastle University and will often have medical students working with us. The students will only be present with your consent. If you have an interesting health issue and would have the time to help us with training sessions please let us know. We would be very grateful.
