Newcastle upon Tyne,
The Freeman Hospital is situated near Heaton in Newcastle, which is fairly close to Jesmond, the location of the Rosebery Hotel. The Rosebery is only 1.1 miles away from the Freeman hospital, making it accessible for both short and long term patients and loved ones.
The Freeman hospital is relied upon by patients with long-term illness or conditions in order to receive the correct treatment from experienced professionals.
As the hospital has no A&E department, it is used exclusively for patient treatments, check-ups, advice and surgeries. It is also used as a teaching hospital by nursing and medical students from the local universities.
The Freeman hospital is well known as having performed the very first single and double lung transplants in the country, as well as the first paediatric heart transplant in the UK. Nationally, the Freeman is listed as the third transplant hospital in the country by the government and is the location of the institution of transplantation.
The Northern Cancer Centre is also housed in the Freeman hospital and is home to the Bobby Robson clinical trials unit for oncology.
