Through our 'Sending Love' scheme, you can send a message / letter and photographs to a loved one while they are a patient in one of our hospitals. We will then hand deliver your messages to your loved one to help you stay in touch.
To send a message simply complete the form below or if you prefer you can send your message in an email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Please make sure you include the patient's full name, date of birth and where they are in the hospital i.e. ward name)
If you would prefer, you can post your letter to:
Communications Team #sendinglove
South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust
South Tyneside District Hospital
Harton Wing, Harton Lane
Messages will be delivered from 3pm every day across our hospital sites. Any messages received before 3pm will go out the same day, anything after 3pm will go into the next day's deliveries.
Please note that this service does not run on Bank Holidays e.g. Christmas/Boxing Day.
At the moment we will be running the deliveries Monday - Friday. If we receive your message on a Saturday or Sunday, it will be delivered on the following Monday.
