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.
