Living in Newcastle

Newcastle and the surrounding area offers a mixture of housing with something for every taste. House prices in the North East of England are much lower than most of the rest of the country, but housing in the area still offers quality, prestigious homes. There are a range of housing types, from modern contemporary riverside apartments on Newcastle's vibrant quayside, to executive homes at Wynyard Village about 30 miles drive south of Newcastle. In surrounding Northumbria you can find many rural retreats, and the coastal areas provide substantial older character properties - from terraced houses to unique 'Tyneside' flats from the Victorian and Edwardian era.

Training in Newcastle

Both Newcastle and Northumbira Universities are centres of excellence in medicine and dentistry. The area is also home to many well-established colleges which offer a wide range of courses from A levels to vocationally based qualifications. There is a wealth of learning opportunities available here: at departmental level, at Trust-wide level, and for specialty training at a regional level in collaboration with other Trusts across Health Education North East. Practitioners come to us from all over the UK - and from as far afield as Egypt and China - to learn the latest techniques and to see best practice in action.
