New hospital rubber-stamped

HEALTH bosses have rubber-stamped a £300m hospital after months of wrangling.

The board of directors from North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust gathered at the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, yesterday to formally discuss revised plans for the hospital at Wynyard.

As previously reported, the new hospital will replace the Stockton-based facility, as well as the University Hospital of Hartlepool, in Holdforth Road.
