Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital opened in 2015, providing specialist emergency care for seriously ill and injured patients from across Northumberland and North Tyneside. It is England’s first purpose-built specialist emergency care hospital, with emergency consultants on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as consultants in a range of specialties working seven days a week.
Parking is available and costs £1 per visit for a 24 hour period from the time the ticket is issued. The first 20 minutes of parking is free so if you take a ticket and exit the car park within 20 minutes, there will be no charge.
Please take a ticket to raise the barrier to gain entry to the car park. You will then use this ticket to pay at a pay station before leaving. The payment machines take coins and notes, as well as credit and debit cards.
There are a number of designated free parking bays reserved for registered disabled drivers displaying a valid blue badge permit.
