Compliments

Positive feedback has a great impact on our staff – it is nice to know that you are doing a good job from the people you care for. Unfortunately, we can not accept gifts but will pass on your kind words.

Your messages can be sent directly to the department or ward through the main hospital addresses or via the Patient Experience team email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
