It is part of the town’s pioneering £4.6million integrated health and social care scheme which is one of the first facilities of its kind in the country to provide hospital and social care support under one roof. The scheme has been built in partnership with Northumberland County Council.

The hospital is on the first floor of the development and has 15 beds. These are arranged in two four-bed bays and seven single en-suite rooms offering the utmost privacy and dignity, with one room specially adapted for bariatric patients.

The multi-disciplinary hospital team provides specialist support and rehabilitation including occupational therapy and physiotherapy for patients who need extra help to prepare them for going home.

They also provide palliative care for those approaching the end of life and a minor injuries service which is open 9am to 5pm every day.

As of Thursday, 30 June, 2022, visiting restrictions have been further eased in our hospitals, although visiting slots must still be booked in advance.

Hourly slots for visitors on all general adult wards are available between 10am and 8pm, with the last visiting slot ending at 8pm, during this hourly slot the patient can have two visitors. Please note that visitors are now interchangeable across each hourly slot and no longer need to be the same nominated person.

Due to the need for enhanced infection prevention measures, visiting will remain restricted on surgical wards, but for patients who have been in hospital for 72 hours or more, one nominated visitor will be permitted to book a slot. Those wishing to visit should check arrangements with the ward.

Patients who are in the emergency department will be able to have one interchangeable visitor with them, but this can be increased if the patient is in a critical condition.

Please don’t visit if you are feeling unwell

You must not visit if you are unwell or you have a household/close contact who is currently unwell.

Wash your hands

Please wash your hands at the hospital entrances. There are also hand-sanitising points around the hospital – please feel free to use them. Face coverings are now only required in certain circumstances and ward staff will advise.

We would like to thank all visitors for their support and cooperation at this time.
