Talk to us, openly and honestly
We’re committed to safe and compassionate patient care. We want you and your relatives to receive the best level of service whether you’re being treated at, or visiting, one of our hospitals.
If you’re happy with the care and service you experienced, we’d love to hear from you. Our staff work very hard and really appreciate your support and encouragement.
We also want to hear from you if you’re not happy with the care and treatment you received. Your feedback means we can put things right, whatever happens and stop it from happening again.
We use all feedback to improve our patient care.
Patient and family enquiries
If you have recently been treated in one of our hospitals, you can share your experience with Care Opinion. It’s a confidential service to feedback on the care and treatment you received, good or bad.
Share your story online and Care Opinion will publish your feedback on their website. It’s an independent service of Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust and the NHS, but we respond to all comments relating to our hospitals and share them with our staff.

You can see feedback from some of our patients via Care Opinion on our homepage.
You can also contact the Care Quality Commission (CQC) about your experience of our services, although the CQC can not investigate individual complaints.
If you prefer to feedback to us directly, you can complete our online inpatient care survey, also known as our Friends and Family Test. We review all responses which help us to improve your patient experience.
If you have a concern about the care or treatment you receive during your time in hospital, please talk to a member of our staff. They may be able to resolve your concerns straight away.
