Comments and Complaints

Patient Services

As a patient, relative, carer, friend of a patient or any other member of the public, you may have questions about the services we provide and may need someone to turn to for on-the-spot help and advice. This is where Patient Services can help.

Patient Services listen to your concerns and suggestions and will treat all information confidentially.

If you have a complaint, complaint or suggestion about a hospital, mental health or community service, please contact them directly:

For all complaints and enquiries about local GPs, Dentists, Pharmacists and Opticians please contact contact them directly and ask for the Practice Manager or Manager. Information should be available and provided to you on how to share feedback, give a compliment or make a complaint.
