HOSPITAL: Trust meets standards

Thank you for reporting the excellent care that Will Aitchison received at the new Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, (Northumberland Gazette, November 19).

As elected public governors for this area we continue to monitor developments and are pleased to report that the new hospital has improved care and outcomes for seriously ill and injured patients.

The trust is one of few in the country to be meeting the national standards for treating emergency patients and is reducing unnecessary hospital admission for patients.

If members of the public have particular concerns or comments they can contact their public governors and we will pass them on to Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust.
