Changes to continuing health care (CHC) assessment teams in Newcastle and Gateshead

From 1 October 2016, we are making some changes to the way our continuing healthcare teams are organised in Newcastle and Gateshead, with nurse assessors for both areas becoming part of a single team based at Ridley House in Gosforth.

With all CHC staff based together within the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group), we can improve our service to patients and families, making sure that our procedures are clear and consistent across the whole area. This will include a single phone number and email address to contact the team.

While this will help us to work as efficiently as possible, we would also like to reassure patients and families that this change will not affect care packages or change the staff that you are used to dealing with.

From 1 October, the team can be contacted at:

NHS Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
Floor 3, Ridley House
Gosforth
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE3 1DQ

Tel: 0191 223 6503
Email: NGCCG.continuinghealthcare@nhs.net
Fax: 0191 223 6500 – fast track submissions should be sent to this number

All documentation relating to patients should be sent to this address from 1 October.

If you have any questions, please contact the team on the number above.
