Complaints Management

As a patient of the North West Hospital and Health Service, your rights are very important to us, and we will take your feedback with seriousness and respect.

We recommend that you give your feedback to a member of staff at the time of your service.
If you remain unhappy with the response you receive, you can choose to make a formal complaint with our service.  Complaints can be made by contacting us via the details listed on this page or by completing our electronic form below.  

Staff will acknowledge your concerns within five (5) days or contact you for further information. If you have raised an issue requiring an investigation, you should receive a feedback letter within 35 days.

While every effort is made to complete investigations within this time frame, for complex matters it may extend beyond 35 days.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint you have the option of also contacting the Office of the Health Ombudsman
