Shotley Bridge Community Hospital Services – Engagement Events

The NHS in Durham will be launching an engagement exercise to hear from local people about services that could be provided from a brand new health facility in the North West Durham area - and we want to hear your views!

NHS North Durham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for planning and buying the majority of health services in the area, is keen that public feedback helps to influence how services are provided in the future. 

Come along to one of the CCG's public events and find out more. We will also be holding a series of 'pop-up' events at Shotley Bridge Community Hospital and a variety of community centres across the local area during the engagement to talk to you about this. Online opportunities to feedback will also be available from 27th March too.  You can get in touch with us by using these dedicated contact details and0191 389 8609 (recorded answerphone).

  • Rehabilitation beds - where you can be supported to restore mobility to enable you to live as active life as possible
  • Diagnostics - x-rays and things like ultrasound scans
  • Theatre - where you would have operations 
  • Endoscopy - procedures that can examine the inside of your body using an instrument called an endoscope.
