Bishop Auckland Hospital

Day Surgery at Bishop Auckland is based on Ward 20 on the second floor; it shares the department with the Endoscopy Unit and is conveniently located directly opposite the operating theatres.

Patients entering the hospital via the Main Entrance should make their way to the second floor, Ward 20 is mid way along the corridor on the right.  On entering the ward you will find a small waiting area; patients should book in at the Reception desk located immediately to your left as you enter through the ward doors.


'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
