Have a Say on Health Centres
PEOPLE in the region are being asked for their views on the development of new health services in the region.
NHS North of Tyne, a management team working across Newcastle Primary Care Trust (PCT), North Tyneside PCT and Northumberland Care Trust is seeking views on where a new health centre and GP practices should be sited.
Members of the public are welcome to attend drop-in sessions on the consultation organised.
The first session is on July 11, at Scotswood Neighbourhood Centre, from 10am to 1.30pm.
There are also sessions at St Aidan's Community Centre, Brunton Park, on July 15, at 4pm and Cowgate Neighbourhood Centre on July 16, at 10am or St James's Park on July 28 at 6.30pm.
Dr Mike Guy, medical director for NHS North of Tyne, pictured, said: "These new services are aimed at providing more flexibility. They will also result in more health services being provided closer to where people live."
