A new super hospital is set to open its door to patients next June and when it does, it will be a British first.
It will be the first to be fully staffed by specialists for emergency care to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Today, the medical director of NHS England, Sir Bruce Keogh, visited the site near Cramlington for an official ceremony and to see the progress on a facility which he believes will be the future for A&Es.
Katie Oakes was there for us.
