The new facility at Morpeth View was designed to help support the Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s goal of developing innovative ways of delivering multi-disciplinary outpatient services.

The third story of the centre was transformed into a new state-of-the-art space, cutting waiting times and providing and improving patient experience.

Northumbria Healthcare’s orthopaedic team currently carries out 3,200 hip and knee replacements each year. Previously, patients had to make several trips to the hospital for many different elements throughout treatment which lead to longer waits. Now, Morpeth view will act as a ‘one-stop shop’ for patients having joint replacements, helping to slash waiting times.

With elevated views out across the town, the new outpatient hub will be a pleasant environment for patients visiting and staff providing treatment. The modern interiors provoke a sense of calm and space with clean, cool colour palettes used. With plentiful natural light, the consultation rooms are bright and spacious. Working with the team at P+HS, we created a reception and seating area that offers a comfortable, relaxed environment for patients and visitors. Hygenius also provided the FF&E fitout of Morpeth View including office areas, consulting rooms, clean & dirty utilities and storage areas.

“The new facility is a modern and comfortable environment, which will hopefully mean an all-round improved experience for patients who come to us.”

Scott Muller, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Northumbria Healthcare
