New Berwick Hospital Plans Approved

Health leaders in Northumberland have approved plans for a new state-of-the-art hospital for Berwick. The move has been approved by the leadership of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group in their individual board meetings, which took place at the end of last month.

The development is being planned on the existing Swan Centre for Leisure site and will include upgraded leisure facilities.

This development of a new integrated health, social care and leisure facility requires further approval from Northumberland County Council and there will be further opportunities for the public to have their say.
