NHS medical director Sir Bruce Keogh has given his seal of approval to the first hospital in the country dedicated to providing emergency care every day of the week.

Due to open in 2015, Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington will have specialist emergency care consultants working round the clock to provide care for the 500,000 people of North Tyneside and Northumberland.

Performing a topping out ceremony by sealing the roof of the new facility, Sir Bruce said: “This represents a significant step towards achieving the highest standards in patient care. The new hospital here at Cramlington adds momentum to our plans to make a fundamental shift in the provision of urgent care.”
