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.

Find Services

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