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 gives you another way to feedback about the health and social care services you’ve used. Care Opinion is an independent, non-profit feedback platform. Your comments are passed on to the service provider who will often give you a public response on the website and where possible, 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.
