Concerns, complaints and compliments

Find out more about how to express your views about your hospital care.

Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust aims to provide high quality care and services for our patients. We want to know when things go well and also help you when you have any concerns or questions about your treatment. Here you’ll find out about the different ways to contact us if you have any concerns, complaints or compliments.

If you have a concern about your care or about any aspect of our service, please speak to the member of staff who is with you at the time. They may be able to resolve your concerns straight away.

If the staff member is unable to assist you, your first point of contact is the Trust’s Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
