    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.
