Dental Surgeries

Bensham Dental Practice

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

Seriously the best dentist I've ever been registered with. The staff are very polite and helpful and the quality of the work is excellent. Highly recommended!

Best dental practice I've ever been to, I highly recommend them to anyone. Their dentist Gaurav is clearly very well educated and passionate about his work. He gave my teeth a thorough examination and clean, and his feedback and attention to detail was excellent. Gaurav's friendly demeanor put me at ease. Besides Gaurav, the staff were all nice and professional, but also friendly and talkative, which made me feel comfortable. The building itself was tidy and well kept, including all the equipment. I was very impressed by the level of service compared to all other dental practices I've visited previously. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience overall. Can't recommend enough, I wish I had joined up earlier

Denmark Street Dental Practice Ltd

2 Denmark St, Gateshead NE8 1NQ, UK – 0191 477 2438

Well I would say quality never comes cheap but a half hour appointment this morning has got to the root (....) of the problem. Now I know exactly where the problem is and what we're going to do about it. For £150 the CT scan, the information given and professionalism shown toward me was top drawer. An awful lot of messing around has been saved by this trip and there are a lot more expensive dentists out there. I'd recommend this practice 100%. Matthew Bell

Newcastle Dental Hospital

Richardson Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 4AZ, UK – 0191 233 6161

I visited the Dental Hospital today. I had an abcess on a broken tooth, I was in a lot of pain already. So it came as a shock when they informed me, the tooth had to come out. When I went into the room to get the tooth out, I was upset. The amazing dental nurse(Helen Salters Hoult) and dentist (Frances Wong) where amazing. I would attend the dentist without any worries, if I had these as my dentist and nurse. I had not been to the dentist for 8 years due to terrible experience. Well done RVI Dental Hospital.

Absolutely amazing, I would have this place as my normal dentist if I could... can I ? Anyway brilliant staff nice friendly and amazing follow up call to make sure everything was good.

Heaton Road Surgery

17-19 Heaton Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE6 1SA, UK – 0191 265 5911

I have been very pleased with the prompt, efficient and personal service I have received from the NHS as coordinated by Dr Gall over the last 6 weeks. I was aware of my symptoms, and self diagnosed, and received a prompt appointment from Dr Gall, who explored alternative explanations, and arranged all the necessary tests. When the results came back she arranged a prompt appointment (that day!) at the specialist clinic, and she has kept in touch as follow up, including her phoning me herself to check how things were going. I have consulted at least 2 of the other GPs at the practise over the last 10 years, all of which I was happy with, but none of these were for serious conditions such as I have now. I am very happy with my experience of the NHS when I need it, and of the help I have received from the Heaton Road Surgery in particular. Many thanks.

Good doctors but its getting to see one that's the actual problem. Often have to resort to the drop in as I can't wait 2 to 3 weeks .

Dilston Medical Centre

23 Dilston Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 5AB, UK – 0191 219 6975

Dilston staff and doctors go the extra mile. Can get pretty hectic when buzzy. Nurses are great as well.

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.

Nuffield Health Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospital

Clayton Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1JP, UK – 0191 281 6131

I had surgery with Mr Woodcock. Staff were very helpful & the surgery went well. Can’t praise the surgeon enough. He took time to explain the whole procedure at my consultation & my pre op was carried out by a lovely nurse & tests by a Dr who was busy on the wards, but came to do my blood test within minutes of being called. Definitely no waiting around for hours . Aftercare is absolutely 100% amazing. I’ve used other private health before & they were total utter rubbish. The Nuffield might be a tad more expensive, but it’s well worth it for the care & attention paid to you during your stay & all your consultations & surgery. 11 out of 10 from me!!

Everyone is so welcoming from the time you walk through the door to you leave, they explain and describes everything they are doing so you are at ease all the time. What a fantastic place and staff and there are nice hot or cold drinks when you want one really really good experience.

Royal Victoria Infirmary

Queen Victoria Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4LP, UK – 0191 233 6161

Very good experience. Went to a minor injuries, staff was friendly and helpful, seems they know what they are doing. The hospital looks new, modern and clean, receptionist also friendly. Sorted out in about 1 hour time with everything. Compared to an A&E in London where just a waiting time is typically about 5 hours this is much better experience. I hope I won't have to visit healthcare services long time but if I have to I will be happy to use this hospital again.

Only ever attended as a visitor or outpatient. Large hospital with specialist enters for certain conditions. It’s near the town centre, which was useful as I had an hour to kill. There are several cafés and a shop. Signage seemed quite clear and a chap was on hand to direct me to the right dept.

I visited this church when Housefires where performing, I think it might of been last year. I had an amazing time and really felt Jesus was with us. I bought the CD and spoke to some amazing people who Love Our Lord and Savior with True Hearts. Thank you, you are all amazing people. I pray Jesus Changes you from the inside out, this message is for everyone not just believers. None believers and believers alike will one day all see the wonder of God and every knee shall bow to Jesus.

An amazing place that I’ve called home for 13 years now. From the amazing welcome to the inclusive community this is a place you’ll be accepted with open arms.

Byker waste recycling centre

Glasshouse St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE6 1AH, UK – 0191 278 7878

Make sure you have the items you want to dispose of sorted into the correct skip. The staff will keep you right. This is a very busy place and you can sometimes wait for up to half an hour to get to the dumping place. It frequently closes early when the skips are full.

Clearly labelled skips, easy to get rid of stuff including broken electrical goods - just ask the staff where to go if you're not sure. Do check the opening hours and check the council's Facebook / Twitter to see if it's had to close early - and be prepared to wait in a queue if you turn up on a Saturday morning!

JC Pallets Recycle

Thoroughly friendly and professional service with excellent quality pallets.

I bought pallets for a DIY project for my garden and I would highly recommend JCPallets. Service was friendly,professional and helpful. Prices are very good as well, much cheaper than most. Delivery was very quick, just an hour and a half after I bought the pallets and driver was good as well. Five stars from me. Thanks

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Newcastle Upon Tyne

Ury Restaurant

27 Queen St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3UG, UK – 0191 232 7799

Visited Thursday evening and really enjoyed the meal and time we had. The food was excellent. The service by Oorja was outstanding as it was extremely helpful and friendly and gave of her time too. Look forward to visiting again.

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. She loved the masala dosa!

Harissa

31-33 Starbeck Ave, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1RJ, UK – 0191 261 5501

Fabulous food. Lovely atmosphere. Amazing lamb.

Came here a few weeks ago for an evening meal. The meal itself was delicious, albeit a little more expensive than I usually pay but it was worth it. My only issue, and the thing preventing me from rating any higher, was the quality of service. Although the staff were very friendly, my main meal came out covered in nuts (something I only realised after I started eating) despite the menu not saying anything about the meal including nuts. I’m allergic, so I was obviously a little concerned. I told the waiter, who was very apologetic, who then brought me out a fresh main. However, the main only included half of the ingredients that my original meal had. I told the waiter, and he brought me out a bowl of Falaffel (despite there being a number of things missing) only this time far less apologetic than before. Feeling uncomfortable, I refrained from commenting further. When we asked for the bill, my paltry main was still listed as full price (£15 for what was effectively half of what I ordered). I left feeling a little cheated and slightly awkward. We will be coming back (my girlfriend loved her meal) but I feel like it's worth mentioning!

Moulin Rouge Cafe & Grill

233 Westgate Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 6AD, UK – 0191 232 0276

Amazing food and great value. Been coming here for years and the quality has never dropped. Delicious food, friendly service. The lamb chops and the kofta are a must!

They don't have a TV so couldn't show any Iran world cup matches but the employees were very friendly and even recommended two competitor cafes who would show the match on TV! Top class customer service, highly recommend. The type of people who make customer service a priority over small money .

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!

Culverdene Day Nursery
