Clinics and facilities at The Richardson Hospital

Local health bosses are working with community groups to raise awareness of all the clinics and other services being provided at The Richardson Hospital, Barnard Castle, including the opportunities for local and other groups/organisations to use the hospital's facilities which include meeting rooms. 

A spokesperson for County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and Durham, Dales, Easington and Sedgefield CCG, said, "Over 20 health specialties run clinics at The Richardson Hospital, many of which are delivered by consultants or specialist nurses. 

"There are clinics every day in two of our most popular clinics, physiotherapy and podiatry.    Other clinics include urology, rheumatology, dermatology, audiology, cardio rehabilitation, ophthalmology and speech and language therapy.  The hospital also has a weekly contraception and sexual health clinic.  Patients using Warfarin can also be monitored at The Richardson Hospital.  These clinics are for the benefit and convenience of local people."

Meeting rooms within the hospital are also available for use by local businesses and other organisations looking for a meeting place close to the centre of Barnard Castle.

Facilities at The Richardson Hospital are being advertised on posters in business and public buildings in Barnard Castle.
