Additional Ward Notes

This ward is the interim home of the Whalton Unit which moved temporarily on 19 December 2018 to ensure there is adequate staffing to cope with the expected increase in demand over the winter months.

We are able to help with transport from Morpeth for those who find it difficult to travel to visit loved ones in Ward 8 Whalton Unit. Please discuss this with the ward team on 01670 529108 if you are affected.
