Consumer Complaints and Compliments

We welcome both compliments about our service, and complaints when we have not delivered the sort of service you expect.

We recognise that some people find it difficult directly contacting the area they wish to complain about. We also recognise that the Women's and Children's Health Network is a large organisation and you may have had contact with several different areas, even on one day. You may not recall the name of a unit, department, ward or staff member you had contact with.

If you do not wish to contact the area directly, or would like to make a formal complaint, you are welcome to contact the Consumer Feedback Coordinator. You may provide your feedback by telephone, fax, letter or email.

The following form may help with providing written feedback (for either complaints or compliments).
