IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR PARENTS
9am until 9pm opening hours for South Tyneside Urgent Care for Children service
With effect from Monday 7 March, the nurse-led service at South Tyneside District Hospital will be open every day from 9am until 9pm. The temporary change has been necessary due to unforeseen staffing challenges. Parents are being reassured that the service will continue to be available for 12 hours every day to see and treat the vast majority of children who attend hospital with urgent, but not life threatening, problems.
The temporary change means the service will open one hour later at 9am (instead of 8am) and close one hour earlier each day at 9pm (instead of 10pm). Please see attached updated NHS information leaflet.
