Healthcare at the heart of the community Welcome to this dedicated supplement all about services at Wansbeck General Hospital, Blyth Community Hospital and out in the community provided by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Our hospital and communitybased teams are at the heart of local healthcare services and provide care to people living in communities across south east Northumberland. With the introduction of our new model of emergency care last June which saw the opening of The Northumbria hospital in Cramlington, Wansbeck and Blyth hospitals have become centres of excellence for planned and on-going care. This means that whether you have been referred by your GP for an outpatient appointment, need a planned diagnostic test or scan, are having on-going care or a planned procedure or operation – these will all take place at our hospitals in Wansbeck or Blyth. Our urgent care centre at Wansbeck hospital also operates round the clock

looking after people with urgent care needs, with a minor injuries service also available at Blyth hospital on weekdays. If you require on-going inpatient care and rehabilitation following emergency treatment at The Northumbria hospital, this will also take place at Wansbeck or Blyth hospitals, if they are the hospitals closest to you. However, in most cases, as explained on page 4, due to fast access to specialists and diagnostics at The Northumbria, more of our emergency patients are now being discharged straight home. Since the opening of The Northumbria hospital, we now have more space available at Wansbeck hospital in order to develop services, enhance privacy and dignity for patients and improve patient
