Who we are

Assura plc is a specialist real estate investment trust working solely on healthcare premises. We look after more than 570 GP surgery, primary care, diagnostic and treatment centre buildings across the UK.


Together these facilities serve millions of patients, are the workplaces of thousands of healthcare staff and make space for other community services too.

What is this website about?

Working in partnership with Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, we are preparing a planning application for a health and education hub on undeveloped land within the Trust’s existing estate at the Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington.

This is where you can view details of the proposals, including the latest plans for the scheme. We would welcome any feedback you may have before we submit our planning application.
