  Urgent care consultation  
 

A public consultation into how urgent care services can be arranged in South Tyneside was launched in May and will run until the end of August. The consultation will look at how the access and treatment for local people can be significantly improved by the creation of a new urgent care ‘one stop shop’ at South Tyneside General Hospital.

We are holding a public consultation over the next 12 weeks and are asking for views on a range of proposals that will help local doctors and nurses provide the best possible care for patients with an urgent care need.

For the last two weeks, it has been our pleasure to play host to two Year 12 work experience students from the area.

From 16 June, a student from Harton Technology College spent some time shadowing our admin and finance teams, as well as meeting our Chief Officer, David Hambleton, to discuss life as a doctor. 

The student was also able to attend a number of meetings alongside members of the CCG, including an NHS IQ session and the GP Education Forum.

During week two, we were joined by a student from St Joseph’s Catholic Academy.  Once again, they were given the opportunity to shadow our admin and finance teams, as well as spending time with a local pharmacist to find out more about the role. 

Away from the office, the second student was able to attend an urgent care public meeting, sit in on a self-care workshop and also attended a ‘Healthy Hebburn’ lesson at a local primary school.

Pupils from Hebburn Lakes Primary School recently had a lesson with members of our staff to show the range of employment opportunities in the NHS.

Doctors, nurses, financial managers, board members and secretaries all attended the lesson to show pupils what goes in to its work of planning and buying health services for South Tyneside.

Several doctors - including our Clinical Chair, Dr Matthew Walmsley, and local GPs Dr Jon Tose and Dr Funmi Nixon – along with experienced nurses, directors, practice managers and administrative staff spoke to small groups of pupils in five minute ‘speed sessions’ across two classes of 10 and 11 year olds.
