Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)

We offer a PALS service which can give you informal advice if you have a concern, query or help you make a complaint. There’s more information on the Patient Advice and Liaison Service page, but you can also get in touch with us using the contact details above.

How to complain

Initially, you should try to speak to a member of the team caring for you. In many cases, it will be possible for them to sort out the problem straight away. You can find service details by visiting ‘Explore our services’.

However, if you prefer to talk to someone not involved in your care, you can raise the issue with our Customer Experience team using the contact details above.

What do you need to know?

Try and give as much detail as possible – it’s important for us to understand exactly what it is you are unhappy with and what you would like to happen as a result, so that we can try to deal with the issue as quickly as we can.

What happens when I complain?

We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint within three working days at which time you will be advised of the timescale to complete any necessary investigation. We aim to respond to formal complaints within 30 working days. However, some concerns may take longer to investigate, particularly if a number of issues are involved.

Raising a complaint will not affect your care or treatment in any way.

Complaining about a GP service

If your complaint relates to a GP service and you have already registered your complaint with us, then you can also raise your complaint with the commissioner of the service, NHS England.
