Endoscopy open day event - 18 January 2020, North Tyneside hospital

Welcome to the Northumbria world of endoscopy…

Endoscopy at Northumbria Healthcare is an ever-growing and developing service. It’s cutting edge, innovative and the first line of investigation for thousands of patients every year.

With five units across Northumberland and North Tyneside offering patients some of the best facilities in the NHS, we use the latest techniques and newest technology.

With increasing numbers of patients needing our services, we’re looking to recruit enthusiastic nurses to join our expanding team.

We are passionate about developing our workforce and have one of the highest numbers of specialist nurse endoscopists of any trust in the country. And we are committed to training more.

Now is an exciting time to join us with brand new units at Hexham General Hospital and Berwick Infirmary on the horizon.

To find out more and meet members of our team, come along to our state-of-the-art unit at North Tyneside General Hospital on Saturday 18 January 2020 from 9am to 11am.

The team is highly-skilled and there is a huge range of career opportunities available for all grades of staff with our senior team keen to support the workforce to attain its full potential.

Our open day will give you the opportunity to see a patient’s endoscopy journey and explore the roles available.

Northumbria’s endoscopy service carries out planned investigations at North Tyneside, Wansbeck, Hexham and Alnwick hospitals with emergency procedures taking place at The Northumbria hospital. Overall the service sees almost 20,000 patients a year.

North Tyneside hospital’s unit has undergone a £2.5million refurbishment to provide more space and a much-improved environment for patients.
