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.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our patients, communities and staff remain our overall priority. We will keep visiting arrangements under regular review to support this.

Visiting people with mental health conditions, dementia and/or delirium, learning disabilities and/or autism

We will continue to make reasonable adjustments, so people can stay in touch with their loved ones.

Guidance for all visitors

Wash or gel your hands when entering and leaving our hospitals. Do the same when entering and leaving wards, bays or side rooms.

Please do not visit if you have been unwell or have signs of a cough or cold. Wait for 48 hours after diarrhoea and vomiting symptoms before visiting. If you are unsure, please contact us to see if it is safe for you to visit.

Please do not bring in food for patients. If not possible, staff will advise on how to store and dispose of food.

You may need to leave a bedside or ward if staff ask you to. We would ask that you are respectful of other patients during your visit.
