We are one of the country’s top performing NHS Foundation Trusts, looking after the wellbeing of around half a million people across Northumberland and North Tyneside – one of the largest geographical areas of any NHS Trust in England.

We deliver care from 11 acute sites including an emergency care hospital, general and community hospitals, an outpatient and diagnostic centre, an elderly care unit and an integrated health and social care facility.

We are rated ‘outstanding’ overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We are one of the North East’s largest employers with 9,500 dedicated members of staff. We have a Council of Governors with 70 members, representing the public, staff and some of our external partners.

We invest heavily in staff to ensure that the best talent is attracted, developed, looked after, and retained in every area of the organisation. Staff satisfaction is high and our staff consistently rate us as one of the best places to work in the NHS.

We were one of the first NHS Trusts to receive foundation status, and have been a foundation trust for over a decade.

Candidates must read the entire ‘Applicants Guidance Notes’ before submitting any applications.

Ward 3 is 30 bed acute admissions unit which offers care, support and treatment for patients arriving from accident and emergency.  There is consultant cover 7 days per week and patients are assessed quickly and treatment plans are formulated.

Ward 3 has a strong multi disciplinary approach and a large number of patients are discharged safely home as a result. The average length of stay for our patients is 24 -48 hours.
