Overview

Hexham General Hospital

18th July 2018:

Unfortunately, due to staffing pressures, the urgent care centre at Hexham General Hospital will not be open overnight (22:00 to 08:00) for at least the next four weeks.

This decision has been taken as a last resort and is only done to ensure that we can continue to provide the best possible care during the hours where there is peak demand.

We will keep the matter under constant review and as soon as there is an update will make it available.

If anyone requires assistance between 22:00 and 08:00 please seek help either through NHS 111 or – in an emergency – 999.

 

Hexham General Hospital is a modern hospital providing a full range of diagnostic services and a walk-in urgent care centre. It has four wards consisting of an oncology day unit, a surgical ward for patients who have had general, orthopaedic and gynaecological surgery, a stroke rehabilitation and care of the elderly ward and a general medicine ward. 

For the privacy and dignity of patients the hospital wards are largely single, en-suite rooms. The hospital also has a midwifery-led maternity unit with birthing pool. Two GP practices are based within the hospital.

 

Car parking

Car parking is available and costs £1.20p per hour, up to a maximum of £4 per day. 

Please leave plenty of time to find a space.

A free 20 minute period exists for drop offs and pick ups.
