Transforming the Newcastle Hospitals
Transforming the Newcastle Hospitals is a major building and reorganisation project bringing hospital services together to improve the quality of patient care and is now almost complete.
Largest healthcare modernisation programme in the North East
Costing over £330 million, it is the biggest health project ever seen in the North East and one of the largest in the country. It has overseen the relocation of all acute hospital services from the former Newcastle General Hospital site to two other sites (Freeman Hospital and the Royal Victoria Infirmary), transforming healthcare provision in the region for decades to come.
The larger of the two developments is at the Royal Victoria Infirmary increasing the number of beds and operating theatres, as well as providing a whole host of state-of-the-art medical facilities.
The New Victoria Wing now also includes a brand new Trauma Centre with Accident and Emergency Services, Critical Care Facilities, Neurosciences Centre, Infectious Diseases Unit, Outpatient Clinics, and Diagnostic and Specialist Support Facilities.
