The estates department provides a comprehensive estates management service maintaining and developing the estate. We ensure that the environment for patients, visitors and staff is maintained to the highest standards in line with the trust’s health care led business objectives.
The service is divided into two teams:
Both teams collaborate to deliver and maintain a sustainable and energy efficient fit for purpose estate.
The department is based at:
South Tyneside District Hospital
The Estates workforce consisting of estates officers, supervisors, joiners, painters, electricians, mechanical craftsmen, and maintenance assistants are also based on the District Hospital site from which all the Trust properties are maintained and serviced. The exception to this being St Benedict’s Hospice in Ryhope where the department has a number of handymen on site working on a seven day rota.
