Description

As part of the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, we deliver a wide range of advanced, patient-focused healthcare to patients from Newcastle, the North East and beyond. Our services at the Freeman Hospital range from general surgery, hip and knee replacement and digital hearing aids, through to the latest developments in restoring hearing or treating complex liver, pancreatic and kidney diseases.
We’re a regional urology centre, recognised as having one of the top clinical research programmes in Europe, and have one of the few specialist sleep studies teams in the UK, caring for patients with a wide range of sleeping disorders.

Company description
The Freeman has a well-deserved reputation for the quality of its facilities and we take great care to ensure you are treated in a clean, modern, and friendly environment. As part of the £300m we are investing in transforming our city centre hospitals, and are building a state of the art centre at the Freeman Hospital for the care of patients with cancer and kidney disorders.
International reputation for pioneering treatment
But what really sets us apart, and has earned us an international reputation, is our pioneering expertise in transplant surgery for both adults and children. In 1987 we performed the UK’s first successful heart transplant for a child at the Freeman hospital. We are one of Europe’s leading lung transplant centres, having performed both the first single lung transplant and the first double lung transplant in Europe. And we continue to innovate, introducing a “mechanical heart” service in 2003, keeping adults and children alive until a suitable donor heart is available.
No matter why you come to us, though, all our staff, from surgeons and nurses to cooks and cleaners, are dedicated to giving you leading-edge healthcare, delivered with a personal touch.
Our concourse shop is run in collaboration with our colleagues from the League of Friends and is open seven days a week. Situated on the main corridor of the hospital, only a few seconds walk from the Main Entrance to the hospital, we offer a huge range of seasonal gifts and goods including a wide variety of cards, cuddly toys, games and other forms of entertainment to help make your time, or the time of the person you are visiting in hospital go by more easily.

We are open seven days a week and sell a wide range of sandwiches, snacks and drinks, newspapers and magazines as well as a huge choice of sweets, biscuits and other general groceries.
