North Tyneside General Hospital

Due to the rise in cases of coronavirus in the community, non-essential visiting is suspended in hospitals across Northumberland and North Tyneside.

We’ve taken this difficult, however important, decision to protect our patients and staff.

Until further notice, visiting will only be permitted in the following circumstances and PPE must be worn:

  • For patients who are receiving end-of-life care or are terminally ill and in the late stages of their illness
  • For birthing partners in maternity units
  • For parents or legal guardians in the children’s unit
  • For long-stay patients and those with dementia or where best interest decisions or exceptional clinical/social matters are being discussed, at the discretion of the nurse in charge

Women can bring their birthing partners when attending 12 or 20-week scan appointments.
