Great North Children's Hospital


The Great North Children's Hospital at the RVI at Newcastle was opened November 2010, bringing together most Children Services within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust onto one site. It is one of the largest Children's Hospitals in England, acting as a regional hub for paediatrics in the North East. As well as the NHS clinical services, the hospital is involved in translational research and teaching, in collaboration with Newcastle University. The programme of Paediatrics and Child Health, originally founded by Professor Sir James Spence in 1942, was the first academic department of Child Health in England.[1]
