This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

I am always quite reluctant about the dentist and have been like that since a child, but Gaurav and his team always make me feel at ease when I visit for my check up and the reception staff are equally as friendly. Especially with a nervous customer like myself! 2 thumbs up

Dr F J H Dammers - Bewick Road Surgery

10 Bewick Rd, Gateshead NE8 4DP, UK – 0191 477 2296

Great doctors and pleasant service.

With moving about quite a bit I have had various doctors and various outcomes on long standing symptoms. I have to say that this is by far the best doctors surgery I have attended, Friendly, understanding and extremely helpful. If you live in the correct area I would highly recommend.

Metro Interchange Surgery

5b, New Century House, Jackson St, Gateshead NE8 1HR, UK – 0191 477 6244

I am, by virtue of having long term health problems, a long standing visitor to this practice and generally, the care I receive is good. I rarely see the G.P as the nurses largely oversee the day to day management of my health problems. The doctor, when you do see him, can sometimes appear to be rushed and distracted, but he is a caring G.P. The nurses however, are amazing and the "backbone" of the practice. Both nurses are excellent. I see one nurse in particular and she's absolute brilliant and has supported me, through some really tough times and I know I can ring her, anytime, during surgery hours for advice. The administration and reception staff, are also good, it can take a minute or two for calls to be answered, but they are always helpful and polite. Thank you to all the members of the team, who look after me.

Dr N K Ray - Dr N Muthu Krishnan & Partners

108 Rawling Rd, Gateshead NE8 4QR, UK – 0191 420 3255

Good Doctors practice situated within a former church hall. Very limited parking available on the street as its next door to a very popular nursery. Public transport is sparse to say the least. Local school also restricts parking particularly at home time.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

This is a great place for students to attend, if they can, while in Newcastle or Gateshead. A newly established Seminary (Westminster Presbyterian Theological Seminary) is connected with the church.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Gateshead

Pizza Hut Restaurants

47/49, Russell Way, Metrocentre, Gateshead NE11 9YZ, UK – 0191 493 2161

Serves very tasty pizza, and great for a quick bite. I hate rushing a meal but unfortunately Pizza Hut has that 'rushed' feel about it. If you are looking for a relaxing meal which serves Italian food you simply have to visit a nice Italian restaurant and enjoy your food with a nice glass of wine and the kind of ambience a pizza deserves.

This is a quality Pizza Hut. The waiters were very nice and funny. They had good music too. The pizza was quick to come and the chips were the best chips I had (they had cheese on too). It's so good and had this really good salt too. The cookie dough was also great (as usual).


409 Durham Rd, Gateshead NE9 5AN, UK – 0191 487 7747

Shame about the Abba! Good food very reasonably priced with good service. Had a lovely Sunday roast. Abba mega mixes should be banned otherwise hard to fault this lovely local. :) will be back soon.

A great place for family meals. Excellent value and friendly service.

1 Neville St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 5DP, UK – 0191 230 2466

Such an amazing nursery! Would recommend them very highly: Lovely friendly staff who can’t do enough to help you… There’s such a great atmosphere you can see why the same staff have stayed there years and years Delicious healthy food for the children each day :-) Always different and interesting toys and activities planned… probably why they got an OFSTED outstanding assessment! I also think it’s really helpful that they’re open longer hours than most nurseries: 7am-630pm My twin boys go there and they’ve always loved it… in fact even if we walk past on a non-nursery day they’re pointing at the door wanting to go in!
