Check out new heath website

THE new and improved Northumbria Healthcare website is now up and running.

The local NHS Foundation Trust, which manages healthcare services delivered in hospital, in the community and in people’s homes, has developed a site that is a one-stop shop for information on services it delivers across Northumberland and North Tyneside.

Claire Riley, Director of Communications at the Trust, said: “More and more people use the internet in their day-to-day lives as a source of information.

“Our new website will really support people to make choices about the fantastic services available to them at Northumbria Healthcare.

“The experience our patients have with us is at the heart of everything we do and the site has the latest feedback on what our patients think of us and how they rate our services, which will give confidence in the care we provide.

“We’ve put a lot of work into making sure that the site provides the information we know our patients and visitors are looking for and that it is really easy to navigate so they can find that information quickly.”

For those coming into one of the Trust’s hospitals, there are directions and information about wards, including visiting times and what to bring with them.
