Service Description

Our Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) offers free accessible and confidential support, information and advice to all our patients, their relatives and carers.

Our dedicated team are here to:
• provide support and information and answer any questions about our services. We can also provide information about other local NHS services
• listen to your concerns and suggestions about our hospital services and feed them back to the Trust. Both positive and negative comments help us to continually improve your experience
• help resolve concerns or problems that you may have experienced either as an inpatient or outpatient at any of our hospitals

Additional Information

Additional Information

If you have a concern:
If you are unhappy about the service you received talk to a member of staff within the ward or clinical area you are visiting. Staff will do their best to try and resolve the matter in the first instance. If you are still dissatisfied, contact PALS or speak to a member of staff who can assist you in contacting the service. PALS will try to help resolve the concern or refer you to the appropriate person.

If you are a relative, carer or friend of a patient, where possible, we will need to obtain permission from the patient before we can assist with the concern.

If you wish for an official complaint investigation to be carried out and to receive a formal reply from the Trust you will need to go through the Barts Heath formal complaints procedure.
