Healthwatch Northumberland is the independent champion for people in Northumberland who use health and social care services. As a statutory function (there’s a Healthwatch in each council area of England), we listen to your experiences of GPs, hospitals, dentists, mental health services, care homes and home care - any care service you may have used - and influence change and improvements in these services. We also offer a signposting service where we can help find you a new dental practice or GP for example, help you make complaints, register a concern or give praise, and we can put you in touch with local support groups and services. Our website has a range of health advice and information, the latest on local health issues and lists local events and ways of getting your voice heard by care providers and commissioners. Visit our website: www.healthwatchnorthumberland.co.uk or call: 03332 408468.
Our parishes comprise the Parishes of Haydon Bridge and Beltingham with Henshaw which serve the communities in the South Tyne Valley and the Diocese of Newcastle that run alongside the most famous and breath-taking sections of Hadrian’s Wall.
On this ancient frontier, we are living communities of faith who seek in all things to follow Jesus’ command to love God and love our neighbour with compassion, and generosity, and openness to all.
