Complaints, Comments and Compliments

Telling us your views, whether it is a complaint, concern or compliment helps us to know what we are doing well, to learn lessons from mistakes and to prevent them from happening to anyone else.

We would encourage you to discuss any concerns or complaints you have regarding your NHS treatment and care with your healthcare provider (the organisation where you received the NHS service, for example the hospital trust, your GP surgery, dental surgery, optician or pharmacy). This would be the quickest way to resolve your concern or complaint.

Reporting Fraud

Fraud happens when someone does something dishonestly to make a gain for themselves, or another; or cause a loss, or a risk of loss to another. According to the Fraud Act 2006, it is not necessary to prove a person has been deceived. The focus is on the individual's dishonest behaviour and intent. Just trying to commit fraud, even if not successful, makes the act complete. If you suspect fraud or corruption in the NHS please report it via the NHS fraud and corruption line on 0800 028 4060
