Useful documents and information
As well as providing services that directly support people to speak up for their rights and be involved in decisions about their life, we are also pleased to provide resources that may be helpful to people who just need some information or signposting in order to better understand their circumstances and rights.
If you live in Gateshead and need help with an NHS complaint, visit NHS Independent Complaints Advocacy for information about how we can support you.
