Leaders at South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust (STSFT) are asking for the public’s support as the Trust prepares for three days of industrial action and disruption to NHS services next week.
A Sunderland dad decided to mark a decade on from his lifesaving organ transplant by launching his own music festival - with the funds raised now helping other patients facing kidney conditions.
The British Medical Association has announced that its junior doctors will take industrial action for 72 hours from 7am on Monday 13 March until 7am on Thursday 16 March. Please read this important update about our services.
South Tyneside will remember loved ones lost to COVID-19 and pay tribute to the strength and resilience of communities as final preparations are made for two special events this week.
Our Renal Unit will be on hand to talk to visitors about dialysis and organ donation, while landmarks across Sunderland will glow in the day's colours to mark the event.
Hospital teams who treat hundreds of patients every week have been praised for the care they give following overwhelming feedback thanking them for their dedication.
Sue Robason, Acting Domestic and Linen Manager for CHoICE, has been recognised with a national award for the dedication she's shown during her career.
