Changes to urgent care in North Tyneside

Mon 12th December 2016

North Tyneside CCG’s Chair, Dr John Matthews, has written to the ‘Save North Tyneside NHS’ group to clarify a number of facts around proposed changes to urgent care services locally.

The existing urgent care centres at Battle Hill, Rake Lane and Shiremoor will be replaced by a new Urgent Care Centre from 1 October 2017. This service will provide comprehensive access to urgent care services including all the same functions as the existing service, under one roof – and for the first time, it will be a 24-hour service.
