If you would like to make a comment or complaint after you have left the hospital, please write as soon as possible, but no longer than 6 months of the complaint event, to the hospital's Executive Director, who will then ensure that a thorough investigation is undertaken. We aim to provide a full response within 20 working days of receiving a written complaint.
You may be invited to speak to the hospital's Executive Director on the phone, or if you prefer, an appointment can be made for you.
Our promise to you:
We will listen to every complaint
We will be open, honest and thorough in any investigation
We will deal with everyone fairly and objectively
We will respond promptly

The address is shown below. The Group Chief Executive will consider your complaint and review the way in which it has been handled and respond to you where possible within 20 working days of receiving your written complaint.
