Cervical smears

Marine Avenue Medical Centre is a modern GP Surgery which offers a wide range of services.

Cervical smears can be booked here at the surgery or, if it is more convenient for you, also at the One to One centre at Shiremoor.

Travel vaccinations

If you require vaccinations for your holidays please book at 20 minute appointment with Nurse Wilson by phoning the surgery or booking online.

If you are unsure which vaccines your require most information can be found on the Fit for travel NHS site.

Medical and insurance reports

Whilst every effort will be made to complete these reports within 8 weeks, there may be times when this deadline is not achievable due to various circumstances such as staff leave or the amount of information required from the report.

The Practice endeavours to undertake this type of work in a timely manner, however we must stress that GPs are under no obligation to complete non NHS work and therefore the completion of these reports must take place outside of NHS time as the needs of the practice must always be a priority.

If the medical report requires a face to face or telephone appointment, there may also be a delay as this appointment must take place outside of a GPs regular clinic. We will contact you at the earliest opportunity to arrange this with you.

We appreciate your patience and if you have not heard anything after 8 weeks please do not hesitate to contact us for an update.
