Patient and visitor advice, feedback and complaints

We make every effort to ensure our patients receive the highest standard of care. This includes supporting patients, carers and relatives of patients to the best of our abilities, providing advice and help through a dedicated department called the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).

Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS):

  • Advice and information on your questions or difficulties
  • Listening to concerns and helping find ways of resolving them
  • Taking note of what you tell us to improve the service our hospitals offer their patients
  • Explaining the NHS complaint procedure and refering you to complaints when necessary
  • Receiving feedback and suggestions.

We are a patient friendly, easy to access service designed to provide a personal contact to assist patients, relatives and carers. We are interested in your views on the care our hospitals provide. We welcome concerns, comments, compliments and suggestions to help us improve patient care and patient experience.
