North East hospital launching new private GP service

Patients can see Dr Uddin for a broad range of private services including one to one consultation, diagnosis, treatment and advice, and onward referral to specialists if required.

Dr Uddin said: “I’m very much looking forward to providing high quality, primary healthcare with longer appointment times and excellent facilities in a patient friendly environment.”

During appointments Dr Uddin will help patients understand their medical problems including everything from high blood pressure to cold and flu, to mental health problems. He will offer consultations in various forms including face-to-face as well as via telephone and email, in accordance with patients’ needs.

Shelagh Alderson, Hospital Director at Spire Washington said: “With everyday life it can be hard to get an appointment in a timely manner at your own GP practice. The new service we’re offering at Spire Washington Hospital will enable faster access to appointments which means patients can be diagnosed and treated quicker.”

Dr Uddin will be running a clinic on Friday afternoons. To find out more about the service or to book an appointment call 0191 418 86 87 or email [email protected]
