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

    We can help you find the health or social care service you need or put you in touch with support organisations.

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. Please see opposite the latest Care Opinion feedback for healthcare providers in Northumberland. Visit the website.
