The Practice of Drs Zaidi, Salaudeen and Pillay is based within Palmer Community Hospital, Jarrow, on the western edge of South Tyneside Primary Care Trust. Jarrow is a 15 minute drive away from both the Coast and the City of Newcastle upon Tyne, with good links to public transport. Our patient list size is approx 3900.
The modern practice premises were purpose built in 2003, providing a self-contained unit within the hospital. The Practice had been operating under PMS for a number of years and changed to GMS in April 2015.
The Practice is fully computerised, with networked PCs in each consulting room and has paper light status. The computer system is EMIS WEB. We have path lab links which are received electronically and everyone has access to the NHS Net and the Internet. We are connected to the North East Primary Care Services Agency via GP Links.
The practice covers the Jarrow and Hebburn area.
