If you are a patient or visitor to our hospital, we would welcome feedback on your experience. This could be a suggestion, compliment or to raise a concern.

Who can I talk to?

In the first instance, if you need to discuss any aspects of your hospital experience, please talk to our staff or if you  are in a clinical area please speak to the staff in charge. Please don’t worry about raising anything, staff will want to try to help resolve your concerns or queries. Please tell them straight away, so that action can be taken. If you remain unhappy or feel you can’t speak to staff, please contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS), who will try to help. PALS is a confidential, impartial service for patients, carers and their families or anyone else visiting our hospital that might need help. They offer support and information and will also try to assist to resolve concerns. 

We will share your feedback and appreciation with the staff/department involved. All suggestions will be passed on to an appropriate manager for consideration. We may also share compliments on our public website or in our Trust reports, but we will never include your name or personal details.
