A NEW £9m state-of-the-art medical and social care centre is set to revolutionise how elderly people are looked after in South Tyneside.

Council chiefs have awarded a contract for a new Integrated Care Services Hub to be built by South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust in the grounds of the borough’s District Hospital.

The new 80-bed building is seen as crucial in how the borough deals with both an ageing population and an increasing number of people affected by dementia.
