NHS Help Card

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are supporting a new initiative from NHS North East

The NHS Help Card has been designed to give extra help and support to people whenever they visit a NHS hospital, GP surgery, dentist or optician with the aim of improving access and patient experience at the point of service.


You will find these cards at many of the reception areas in our hospitals; if you need extra help just complete the section on the front of the card and this will tell us what help you need.

These cards are being made available throughout the region and you can use them in all NHS premises. Your family and friends can use them too.
