About Us

Committed to Quality Care

We are committed to improving your experience whilst in our care, whether as out-patient or in-patient. We have opened a state of the art day treatment centre to facilitate day-case surgery for more of our patients. We also have a day of surgery arrival ward to reduce the time you need to spend in hospital prior to in-patient surgery. Many of our procedures require only an overnight stay. We are also developing community based services and have set up a specialist nurse led service for patients with bladder cancer to enable them to look after their medication needs in their own home.

We are the on-call urology service for the Newcastle area and also for the whole of Northumberland up to the Scottish border, as well as providing cover for our neighbouring district hospitals in terms of specialist urology care. Care of emergency urology patients is led by an on call urology consultant leading a team that is trained in the care of acute urology problems. A 24-hour emergency theatre is available to treat urgent or life-threatening emergencies. We also offer a rapid access clinic for non urgent problems that need to be seen swiftly and this service is accessed via general practitioners. An ambulatory clinic allows us to facilitate early discharge of patients who may need some minor follow-up for blood tests, wound review or catheter-related issues.
