We are a small, friendly general practice. We aim to provide a caring and efficient service. We are also committed to preventative medicine in partnership with you.

We are also the first practice in the North East to become a member of the Dementia Action Alliance who bring together organisations across England who are committed to transforming the lives of people with dementia and their carers.  In addition to this we are also the first practice in North Tyneside to achieve the “You’re Welcome” primary accreditation for fulfilling the quality criteria for making health services young people friendly.

New patient questionnaire

Any new patients wishing to register with Park Road Medical Practice will be asked to provide proof of their identity and address. We have made these changes in order to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect our patients and prevent fraud within the NHS.


Patient choice

If you and your GP decide that you need to see a specialist for further treatment, you can now choose where to have your treatment from a list of hospitals or clinics. Please discuss with your GP or if you want to find out more – further information is available on the NHS website.


Information about your NHS number

Everyone registered with the NHS in England and Wales has their own NHS number. Your NHS number is different to your national insurance number. Further information can be located on the NHS website.


Information about your Summary Care Record

If you decide to have a summary care record it will contain important information about any medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

Giving healthcare staff access to this information can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when your GP practice is closed.

Your summary care record will also include your name, address, date of birth and your unique NHS number to help identify you correctly.

You may want to add other details about your care to your summary care record. This will only happen if you ask for the information to be included. You should discuss this with healthcare staff treating you.
