Easter Opening Times at The Grove Medical Group

We wanted to let patients know about our opening times over the Easter period, what to do to prepare, and how to get medical help when the practice is closed.

Read through or jump to sections with the buttons below.

Bank Holidays

As normal, The Grove Medical Group will be closed for the two Easter Bank holidays:

  • Good Friday on 7th April
  • Easter Monday on 10th April

This means the practice will close at the end of the day on Thursday, 6th April, and not reopen again until the morning of Tuesday, 8th April.

Reorder repeat prescriptions early

If you have regularly prescribed medication that needs to be reordered, please do so as soon as possible.

Please allow at least three full working days from requesting a repeat prescription to it being available to collect.

The quickest and easiest way to do this is to order your prescription through the NHS App.

If you can’t use the NHS App, you can also call us on 0191 213 2778, between Closed today.

Pharmacy Opening Times

As well as making sure there is enough time for us to process your prescriptions requests, please be aware of the opening times of your chosen Pharmacy.

Getting help while we are closed

Your first port of call for medical help when the practice is closed should be NHS 111.

By visiting or by calling 111, you can:

  • Get help and advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Check your symptoms and get advice on conditions and medication.B
  • Find self-help resources and links.
  • Find out what services are available near you.
  • Be connected to a nurse, emergency dentist, pharmacist, or GP.
  • Get a face-to-face appointment if you need one.

You should only call 999 or go to Accident and Emergency if it is life-threatening.

Other help

The Ponteland Road Urgent Treatment Centre in Cowgate is a Nurse-led unit for patients with minor illnesses and injuries. No appointment is needed; you can turn up and wait to be treated.

Local community Pharmacists are also available to offer advice and treatment for a series of minor ailments such as migraines, teething, allergies and fevers.

Happy Easter

We would like to wish all patients at The Grove Medical Group a Happy Easter.
