Talks on future of maternity unit

Meetings are taking place to discuss maternity services at North Tyneside General Hospital.

Plans are to stop deliveries in the maternity unit once the new emergency care hospital opens in Cramlington in 2015.

A meeting will take place today (Thursday) at 6.30pm at the Shiremoor Centre, Earsdon Road, and on February 12, at 6.30pm at the John Willie Sams Centre, Dudley.
