Opening hours at Blaydon Urgent Treatment Centre are temporarily changing due to staffing. New opening times are 2pm to 9pm daily, until further notice.

Winter wards

As with most hospitals the QE Hospital will typically see increased demand from patients at various times in the year due to seasonal illnesses. In response to this we will sometimes open additional beds or Ward areas to accommodate more patients in the hospital.

At present, we have three wards that open and close during different points in the year, which are Ward 4, Ward 3 (situated within Ward 4) and Ward 21 Escalation.

When these Wards are open, visiting times will be 2pm – 4pm and 6pm – 7pm.
