Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital
We are very proud that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is consistently proven to be one of the top hospitals in the country. We are a small and friendly hospital and we put our patients at the heart of everything we do. We believe in providing Quality and Excellence to our patients.
Work is due to start on building a fantastic new emergency care centre which will totally transform our patient care. The new centre will provide a one stop shop for all your health needs from when your local doctor’s surgery is closed to when you have a major medical emergency.
Our maternity services are rated as the very best in the country. Our maternity unit is small so our midwives can provide you and your family with dedicated, tailored care from birthing pools to epidurals at this special time for you and your family.
We are also home to the North East Surgical Centre – a beautifully designed building which aims to give patients’ the same care experience you would expect from a five star hotel. Each patient has their own room with en-suite facilities, and we believe this relaxed, individual atmosphere is vital in aiding your recovery from surgery.
We also run the Gateshead Fertility Centre, one of the top ten IVF clinics in the country. Over the past 10 years, we have created hundreds of families in Gateshead and the surrounding area.
Our breast cancer services are amongst the very best and our dedicated staff take you through every step on your recovery journey. We are also the main centre in the North East for women who have a gynaecological cancer.
And we have a nationally recognised reputation for our work as centre for breast and bowel cancer screening. We are one of five centres across the country which provides screening for bowel cancer – serving an area from the Humber to the Scottish border.
We also run a wide variety of services you would expect from a small hospital, taking care of you from birth to our specialist services for older people.
