Telephone: 01604 545784

When you need advice, have concerns, or don't know where to turn. As a patient, relative or carer sometimes you may need on-the-spot help, advice and support. This is where the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) may be able to help.

How PALS can help:

  • Advise and support patients, their families and carers
  • Provide information on NHS services
  • Listen to your concerns, suggestions or queries
  • Help sort out problems quickly on your behalf
  • Improve the service to NHS patients

The service is completely confidential, and PALS acts independently when handling patient and family concerns, liaising with staff, managers, and, where appropriate, relevant organisations, to negotiate immediate or prompt solutions. If necessary, we can also refer patients and their families to specific local or national support agencies.
