About Us

World-Class Expertise

 News - SurgeryWe’re proud to serve the people of the North East but we’re so much more than a group of top-notch local hospitals.

Recognised nationally and internationally as a centre of healthcare excellence, almost a third of our patients come from outside Tyne & Wear to benefit from our wide range of specialist services.

The Freeman Hospital has an international reputation for ground-breaking transplant surgery, and the UK's first Institute of Transplantation was opened at the Freeman Hospital site in 2011 to bring all solid organ transplant services under one roof.

We offer one of the most progressive Robotic Surgery programmes in Europe, with surgeons treating patients in more specialities than any other hospital in the UK today.

Pioneering work is carried out in a wide range of areas, from giving ‘bubble babies’ at the Great North Children's Hospital a chance of a better life, through to restoring hearing – we’re one of only a handful of trusts in the UK to fit the revolutionary BAHA system, transforming patients’ lives when traditional hearing aids just won’t work.

Whichever one of our hospitals or clinics you visit, you can be sure that each member of our staff, from surgeons and nurses to cleaning and catering staff, is dedicated to providing the very highest standard of care possible with a reassuringly personal touch.
