About the Hospital

The Hospital opened on 16 June 2015, providing specialist emergency care for seriously ill and injured patients from across Northumberland and North Tyneside. It is England’s first purpose-built specialist emergency care hospital, with emergency consultants on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as consultants in a range of specialties working seven days a week.


The  hospital has:

  • A state-of-the art emergency department with individual treatment rooms
  • Diagnostics including x-ray, MRI, ultrasound and CT scanners, endoscopy room and cardiac catheter lab – all located close to the emergency department for quick test results, enabling treatment to start earlier
  • A critical care unit
  • Beds for emergency admissions across seven specialty wards – surgery, trauma, cardiology, respiratory, stroke, gastrointestinal and an acute medical unit
  • A short-stay paediatric unit with paediatric ambulatory care
  • Ambulatory care for the rapid assessment of patients with specific conditions, without the need for emergency admission
  • A co-located consultant and midwifery-led birthing centre, with single en-suite rooms which allows partners to stay overnight. It will also have a special care baby unit for those babies needing extra help
  • Operating theatres for emergency/high risk surgery including a dedicated maternity theatre
