About Us

The Surgical Centre is purposely, architectural designed surgical ward which currently has a bed capacity of 25 patients. 

The ward cares for both planned and unplanned general surgical and colorectal patients at the South Tyneside site. There are 5 Consultants based on the ward. 

Our Ward Vision “All patients are treated with personalised, professional and holistic care. On entry to the ward, each individual (patients, medical staff and relatives) is welcomed by staff into the friendly, open environment, which is fostered through strong leadership and outstanding staff. Teamwork is key: equality, compassion and high standards create a harmonious, open and honest practice with clear communication being the heart of the ward.”
