Healthcare and council leaders in Northumberland will meet in public next week to discuss the next steps for a brand new hospital in Berwick-upon-Tweed.
A joint public board meeting will be held between Northumberland County Council and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust on Wednesday 4 June at 12.30pm at Berwick Rangers Football Club.
Members of the public are invited to an information event also being held at Berwick Rangers Football Club from 1.30pm to 3.00pm for anyone wishing to find out more about the many services provided in Berwick Infirmary and the expected timelines for the new hospital build.
Northumbria Healthcare announced at the end of 2013 its intention to rebuild Berwick Infirmary on the existing town centre site after listening intently to the views of local people. Since then, the Trust has been working hard behind the scenes and with partners to move plans forward.
The joint board meeting next week will outline the key next steps in the development.
