As a result of the Newcastle hospitals redevelopments, most acute services have now been moved from the former NGH to RVI and Freeman Hospitals. Full details can be found on the NUTH Trust website.
A map of the major road routes (PDF: 410 KB) serving the former Newcastle General Hospital site (highlighted in yellow) is available. (Map courtesy of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust). We are about 2 miles east of the A1/A69 junction (see map link above). The main entrance is off Westgate Road.
A limited amount of pay-and-display parking is available on site (cost £1.10 an hour).
A map showing the surrounding streets can be found at Streetmap.co.uk.
