Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)

The Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) provide those who use our hospitals services with an opportunity to express any concerns about care or treatment they have received from us. 

We’re also here to listen to comments and suggestions to ensure this information is shared as part of service developments. We are contactable face to face, by telephone or by email. Our ethos is to put the patient at the heart of everything we do, to achieve a resolution that patients and carers are happy with.

How does this service work?

If you need support raising a concern, or you remain unhappy and want to talk to someone who is not directly involved in your care, please contact us. We can liaise on your behalf by contacting the clinical staff and managers of services to try to resolve your concerns.
