Clarifying hospital ward

A CARE home provider wishes to clarify that it does not operate a Morpeth hospital ward.

The Whalton Unit from Morpeth Cottage Hospital is run from the first floor of Foxton Court, a Helen McArdle care home beside the former hospital.

However, Helen McArdle has no involvement in running the ward, which is operated by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The clarification follows a report on patient feedback about the unit.
