Haltwhistle Hospital gets the Go Ahead

Great news last night when the Northumberland County Council granted a full unanimous approval to the plans for a new £5.5 million hospital and care facility in the town, on the site of the old 19th Century War Memorial Hospital. This is a real boost to the Community and further evidence that Haltwhistle is on the up. Many congratulations to everyone in Haltwhistle, particularly the town council, who have worked for many years on this project; and due credit to the Trust who have found the money and the intiative to provide a solution to the town's health needs. A full report is set out in Thursdays Journal:
