Welcome to Blaydon GP Led Practice

Our Practice is highly patient focused and we have a multidisciplinary approach to patients’ health care. We aim to deliver the best for our patients by combining the skills of the practice team with other health and social care workers in the community.

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Serving You

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

Prescription requests

48 hours are required for repeat prescriptions Monday to Friday.  For example if you ordered your repeat prescription on a Monday morning it will not be ready for collection until the Wednesday morning.  If however you order your prescription on a Friday morning this will not be ready for collection until the Tuesday morning, as the surgery is closed at weekends.

During bank holiday periods the turn-around time for repeat prescriptions will increase, therefore during bank holiday periods such as Christmas and Easter please ensure you order your medication in good time so that you have enough medication during the bank holiday periods.

Practice Extended Hours Service

We are delighted to offer our patients appointments with Dr Akhtar on Thursday evenings 6pm-8pm and Saturday mornings 9am-1pm commencing Thursday 28th September 2017.  Please call reception to book your appointment.
