How to get to the hospital

Staff you are likely to meet

Ward 43 is led by Sister Eve Garside and the clinical team is made up of consultant neurologists, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other support staff.

Things you need to know

  • Visiting times are between 2:00 and 4:00pm and 6:00 and 8:00pm every day. We do appreciate that visitors may have a long way to travel and visiting outside of these set times may be arranged in certain circumstances and at the discretion of the nurse in charge.
  • Nursing staff are always available for information regarding a patient's treatment and progress. If you wish to speak to a member of the medical team please bear in mind that after 4:00pm and at weekends wards are covered by an 'on-call' team which may be different to your consultant's team.
  • Patients admitted for elective surgery may have attended a pre-admission clinic and will have been advised of the likely length of hospital stay to expect.
  • Patients who require a longer period of rehabilitation or treatment and are from outside Newcastle will be referred to their local hospital. We do understand this may be upsetting for some patients and their carers but it is vital we adhere to this policy to ensure we can continue to admit all emergency cases as quickly as possible.
