The Great North Children’s Hospital is in Newcastle upon Tyne within the Royal Victoria Infirmary. It is one of only 14 major children’s centres in the UK.
With 245 beds, the Great North Children’s Hospital has the most extensive range of children’s services anywhere outside of London. It has special wards, operating theatres, outpatients and day case suites, all tailored just for children.
The Great North Children’s Hospital has everything a sick or injured child may need is under one roof.
Our young patients include thousands of local children from across the North East and Cumbria. In addition, patients travel with their families across the country to benefit from our specialist services.
The bone marrow transplant unit is one of only two in the UK and Ireland to treat children with Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).
Being in hospital can be daunting and worrying experience for children and young people. The Great North Children’s Hospital is different from a traditional hospital.
All of our clinical areas are bright and welcoming. We want our young patients and their families to have the best experience possible. Alongside this, we also have a 50 seat cinema where children can relax and watch the latest blockbusters.
