From the main entrance, walk through the atrium and up the stairs. There is a lift behind the stair case. Ward 3 is on the first floor, follow the signs.
Ward 3 is a busy elective surgical ward. The routine is largely centred around preparing patients for theatre and receiving them back after their operation. We also have patients coming back from WGH and NTGH for rehabilitation.
The nurse practitioners will review all patients every morning and make decisions regarding their progress and future plans.
Consultants from Wansbeck and North Tyneside general hospitals will be on site within normal working hours. They will visit the ward daily and will review any patients that need to be seen.
