The Campus for Ageing and Vitality currently accommodates Newcastle University’s world-leading ageing research facilities. Working with the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, The North of Tyne Combined Authority and Newcastle City Council, the vision is to establish this site as the world’s premier centre for healthy ageing and living.
