Live waiting times now online

Posted on Thu, 17/08/2017


The waiting times for our urgent care services are now live on the hospital website to help patients understand how long they may need to wait before being seen.

A dedicated webpage now provides live information on waiting times for the public at both the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Blaydon Urgent Treatment Centre.

We have introduced live waiting times on our website to help patients get an idea of how long they may need to wait before being seen and a better understanding of what might be the best option for them.
