Compliments and Concerns
All feedback from our patients is useful to us. We want to continue to improve our services, and knowing what you think of WUTH is really important to us. Maybe you've experienced really fantastic care or have some thoughts on how we might improve.

We have a Matron’s Helpline for patients and visitors to speak to a senior member of nursing staff regarding any questions or concerns they may have. The Helpline is available 24/7 on 07826 858846.
You can leave a review on the NHS.UK or Care Opinion websites. Please see the links in the menu on the left. We always endeavour to respond to these reviews as soon as possible.
You can also get in touch with us on social media by searching for WUTHnhs on Facebook and Twitter.
Making a complaint
Anyone who is receiving care or treatment at WUTH can make a complaint. Sometimes you might just want to raise a concern with us rather than make a formal complaint. With your permission, a relative, friend or carer can make a complaint, or raise concerns, on your behalf.
In the first instance you can raise your concerns with someone providing your care. Most concerns can usually be resolved immediately with the staff who are looking after you. This may be your nurse, midwife, doctor or health worker. Explain what has happened and they will do their best to put things right as quickly as possible. You can also contact our Matron’s Helpline.
If you would like to find out how to make a complaint, please read our leaflet How to Raise a Concern or Complaint at the bottom of this page.
