WORK is set to start which will make life easier for babies who need special care at South Tyneside District Hospital.

A £266,760 injection will see the special care baby unit move from its current location within the hospital in Harton Lane, South Shields, closer to the delivery suite and maternity unit – making it easier for mums to be with their poorly tots.

The move comes after bosses at the hospital were successful in securing the second-largest slice of a £25m national fund to improve and upgrade maternity units.
