We want to hear about your experience of health and social care in the last 12 months, so that together we can shape and influence change in these services.

    Have Your Say

Please get in touch with your experiences of GPs, hospitals, dentists, care homes or other healthcare service. Every comment matters.

Your Health

It starts with you. Find comprehensive advice, information and up-to-date news articles on self-care, health awareness and prevention on our ‘your health’ pages.

If you can’t find the information you need then please let us know and we will do our best to find it for you.

Latest Patient Opinions

Patient Opinion is the UK’s leading independent, non-profit feedback platform for health and social care services nationally. Feedback is passed on to the service provider who will often give a response and hopefully use what you’ve told them to improve services or pass on praise to staff. Here on our website we show you the latest Patient Opinion feedback for healthcare providers in Northumberland.
