Hexham General Hospital
Hexham General Hospital near the town centre in Hexham, Northumberland, is one of the most modern hospitals in the country offering patients a stunning environment in which to receive their care. Opened by Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2004, the hospital has expanded with an extension completed in June 2008. The hospital has three wards and 122 beds covering specialties such as: general medicine, orthopaedics, laparoscopic surgery and maternity. Almost three-quarters of beds are provided in spacious single rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The dedicated stroke unit provides acute and rehabilitation care to stroke patients. In May 2009, Northumbria Healthcare's stroke services were rated in the top 15% in England in a national audit by the Royal College of Physicians. The nurse-led chemotherapy service recently expanded from two days per week to four. This growing service provides a comfortable and friendly environment so that local people can have this life-saving treatment locally. Additional staff have been employed and the service has moved to a spacious unit so that patients can have their treatment in private rooms with en-suite facilities if they wish.

In relation to Northumbria NHS Trust's hip replacement revision rate Dr Foster has been informed by the Trust that the information held on SUS may not be factually correct. The Trust has told Dr Foster that 51 operations were classed as "hip revisions" when in fact only 39 should have been so recorded. Dr Foster has not been able to verify these assertions but is happy to record this statement at the request of the Trust
