You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. 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!

Dentist really nice Man and was very gentle with numbing my mouth and getting rid off that horrible 😨 toothache 😁

A very good dental

Sunniside Dental Practice

10 Sun Street, Sunniside, Newcastle upon Tyne NE16 5LR, UK – 0191 488 0244

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

Bensham Dental Practice

24 Saltwell Rd, Gateshead NE8 4XE, UK – 0191 477 1981

Gaurav and team are very attentive and offered excellent advice regarding a tooth that was bothering me and possible treatment and prices which I found to be very reasonable. The reception staff are also very lovely especially with a nervous customer like myself! Would highly recommend this practice to anyone

100% would recommend to anyone.

Dr F J H Dammers - Bewick Road Surgery

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

Dr P C Eseonu - Cruddas Park Surgery

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.

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.

Had to go to Paediatrics on Christmas eve, the staff were amazing, we had a long wait as it qas really busy, we were given sandwiches and drinks while we waited. My little girl got a box of chocolates and a present.. All in all made a horrible situation that much better.. Thank you

Have spent lots of time at this hospital. They saved my life on two occasions! First on 15th October 2010. Then once again in February 2011 and again in July 2016! All due to complications and infections etc. So I have lots to thank this hospital indeed I find the NHS hospital one if the cleanest in the Northeast. Staff also friendly, helpful and caring. Even being short staffed with all the cuts everyone seems to have to make.

Pizza Express

Yellow Quadrant 122 Metrocentre, Metrocentre, Gateshead NE11 9XZ, UK – 0191 460 6130

Fairly standard menu and pasta dishes perhaps a bit on the small side but pleasant ambiance, excellent food (including a fantastic lasagne that seems to melt in the mouth) and service to match. Special offers frequently available depending on when you visit and it's worth checking these out on the company's website in advance as you may be able to obtain a substantial discout. Well-equipped and scrupulously clean baby-changing facilities (complete with mobile above changing mat) plus disabled toilet.

Good food, quick service and great staff in general ; nice looking reasteraunt and decor. Had a great time.
