General Information

Hexham General Hospital is a modern hospital providing a full range of diagnostic services and 24-hour emergency care. It has four wards consisting of an oncology day unit, a surgical ward for patients who have had general, orthopaedic and gynaecological surgery, a stroke rehabilitation and care of the elderly ward and a general medicine ward.  

For the privacy and dignity of patients the hospital wards are largely single, en-suite rooms. The hospital also has a midwifery-led maternity unit with birthing pool. Two GP practices are based within the hospital.

Ward services from Haltwhistle General Hospital have been temporarily relocated to Hexham while development work takes place.
