Direct to Patients
North Tyneside Care Plus - for the most frail patients
North Tyneside Care Plus is a new way of working with you to improve your health and wellbeing, bringing health care professionals, social care and voluntary services together to ensure you receive the best care.
North Tyneside Care Plus starts by putting you at the centre of your care.
Your Care Plus team, led by one of our GPs, will include nurses, support workers, hospital consultants, therapists, social care and volunteers. Your team will work closely with you to understand your health and wellbeing needs so that you receive the best possible care.
This is a new service, initially aimed at people resident in Whitley Bay. Your usual GP practice is identifying people who will benefit the most, and will explain North Tyneside Care Plus to you before asking if you would like to consider it (some people may receive information direct from Care Plus by letter and phone call on behalf of their usual GP). It is your choice whether you want to be referred into this service, although we are confident that the most suitable patients will get a better experience, and better clinical outcomes, by coming in.
If you wish to speak to reception at North Tyneside Care Plus, please call 0191 298 2196. More information can also be found on <<this page>>.
