We’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, while our neurosurgeons are so well-respected that doctors in Greece send their patients to the Newcastle General for brain surgery.
Pioneering work is carried out in a wide range of areas, from giving ‘bubble babies’ at the RVI a chance of a better life, through to restoring hearing – we’re the only Trust in the UK to fit the revolutionary RetroX 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.
