The proposed development is located to the east of the A189, and south of the B1326 in Cramlington. The site was previously used as a construction compound during the development of the main hospital buildings, and has been left hoarded off for a number of years.

The proposed development site is located within the grounds of the Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, which opened to the public in 2015. The hospital offers emergency care, for seriously ill or injured patients, across a range of specialties. These specialties include critical care, accident and emergency, respiratory and stroke. This new development would be a valuable addition to the existing site and support the Trust in the continued delivery of excellent patient care.
