YOUR PRIVACY: We respect your privacy and will only use your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation. Read our full privacy notice.
There are some things we cannot investigate under the Complaints Regulations. However, we still want to hear about any problems you have experienced as we are continually reviewing services to ensure that they meet the needs of patients. If we are not able to investigate your concerns formally, we shall tell you if this is the case and try to signpost you to the most appropriate organisation.
We recognise the importance of your feedback and this helps us to continue to develop and improve what we do for everyone. Complaints form an important part of this feedback.
You can make a complaint about any NHS treatment or service that either you or your family has received. You can complain on behalf of someone else, however, his or her written consent will be needed.
