Additional events confirmed for public to give their views on plans for new Eye Hospital in Sunderland


South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust are asking people to give their views on proposals for an iconic new Eye Hospital which will be built as part of the City’s ambitious Riverside Sunderland masterplan.

The Trust is keen to hear from as many people as possible to ensure the new Eye Hospital provides the optimal experience for patients, staff and visitors.
