For queries, concerns and complaints about patient care, or to leave feedback, please contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
Please note that during the Covid-19 crisis it might not be possible to respond to your enquiry or complaint as quickly as usual. In particular, it might be necessary to postpone complaint investigations until there is scope for managers and clinicians to give the issues the attention they warrant. All enquiries and complaints will however be acknowledged within a few days and will receive a response as soon as possible. The PALS and Complaints Department will keep everyone who makes contact updated. The Trust remains keen to hear from patients and their families about their experience of our services.
The Patient Advice and Liaison Service can answer queries, liaise with Trust staff to resolve problems and assist you to make a complaint.
