Administrative / biographical background:

When the National Health Service was set up in 1948, the Newcastle Hospital Management Committee was established to co-ordinate the development of the many hospitals in the Newcastle area which became NHS hospitals in 1948 and subsequently.


In 1974 the Health Service was reorganised and the Newcastle Hospital Management Committee was replaced by an Area Health Authority. A further reorganisation in 1982 replaced the Area Health Authority with a District Health Authority which followed similar boundaries to the older authorities and had similar functions. The status of the Health Authority as a teaching authority is recognised in the suffix (Teaching).


The boundary is coterminous with that of the City of Newcastle and the following hospitals fall (or have fallen at some time in the past) under its control.

Ear Nose and Throat Hospital

Ethel Watson Convalescent Home
