Compliments / Complaints
We welcome compliments and feedback relating to your stay with us and we encourage all patients to complete the feedback form that is located at your bedside. This enables us to evaluate and improve our services to our patients. Questionnaires are anonymous. However, if you wish to write a specific and signed letter, your points will be acknowledged and dealt with personally.
Patient satisfaction surveys are conducted independently of the hospital by Press Ganey Associates. If you are surveyed, your inclusion in these surveys is voluntary. We would appreciate your assistance if you are asked to participate.
Likewise, if you are concerned about any aspect of your stay in the hospital, please do not hesitate to raise it at the time with the Nursing Unit Manager on the ward, or alternatively, a member of the executive team. This gives us the opportunity to rectify the situation and to make your stay more comfortable. Complaints can be received by writing a letter, by telephone, in person or through our survey system. All complaints are treated with respect and confidentiality. We use complaints as an opportunity to improve our service.

Volunteers may help with simple non-medical tasks, and they may also spend time in companionship with patients.
Our volunteer program is approved and registered as a non-profit organisation by the Department of Fair Trading. All volunteers are required to have a police clearance and sign a declaration of confidentiality and conflict of interest document.
