In an Emergency

In the case of an emergency, you may need to attend our emergency departments or you may be asked to attend our Gynaecology Assessment Area which is located within both acute Gynaecology wards:

Ward 9 1st Floor University Hospital of North Durham & Ward 62 6th Floor Darlington Memorial Hospital. This will depend on your route of referral, and the reason for your admission.



'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'

Patient, Lowson / Starling Wards, Richardson Hospital
