Hospital services drop-in sessions

County residents can find out more about a new model of emergency care for the area at special sessions next week.

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is holding drop-in events, ahead of a public awareness campaign that starts in March, so members of the public can get the information they need on how services will operate when the specialist hospital near Cramlington opens in June.

This facility will treat all seriously ill and injured patients from across Northumberland and North Tyneside, with emergency care consultants on site 24/7 and specialists also available seven days a week.

There will be a drop-in session from 2pm to 4pm at Wansbeck General Hospital on Friday, February 27. Drop-ins in other parts of Northumberland will be held at a later date.
