If you need to print these procedures out (for example, for a meeting), please only print the relevant section. If you do print a section out please be aware that this is only valid for 72 hours as they are regularly updated and you may be using out-of-date guidance if you refer back to previous versions. Always refer to the website for the most current version.
If you have any queries about the procedures or there is anything you feel needs to be added or changed then please contact SairaPark@gateshead.gov.uk
We have also prepared a number of multi-agency procedures for specific issues. These can be accessed via the links below or via links in the full procedures

An indicators of need frameworks has been produced as a guide to help determine at what level or by what agency any additional needs can be met.
