Complaints, compliments and feedback

Your feedback will help us improve the service we provide to patients and their families and carers in the future. There are many ways to send us your comments:

Talk to our staff

If you are at one of our hospitals, our friendly staff will be able to help you or put you in touch with the people who can help you.

Contact PALS

You can get in touch with the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) by phone, email or in writing.

Online feedback

Our email contact form allows you to submit general feedback, compliments, concerns and complaints.

Patients can review and rate our service at the NHS Choices website. There is a page each for our Chelsea and Sutton hospitals.

In the hospital

Viewpoint boxes can be found throughout our hospitals. Write your comment or suggestion on one of the cards and post it in the box.

Listening Post is a place where you can share your thoughts about your experience of the hospital. It is run by a voluntary group of patients and carers, and is an informal discussion so names are not recorded.

Friends and Family Test

This test asks inpatients one question: “How likely are you to recommend our ward to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”

Answer the question at or find out more.

You can influence future developments

You can have your say on how the hospital is run, from the smallest detail to the largest scheme, by joining the Patient and Carer Advisory Group or becoming a Foundation Trust Member.
