We want to hear your views of health and social care so that together we can shape and influence change in these services.

    Have Your Say


Welcome to your local Healthwatch. We are here to help make health and social care better for people in Northumberland.

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

Whether you want to register with a new GP practice or dentist, find out where your nearest urgent care centre is or need support from a local support group or national organisation, we can help you find the services you need.

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 Care Opinions

Care Opinion (formerly 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.
