- Offer confidential help and advice to resolve problems quickly

You may not wish to make a formal complaint, but instead want to find out what happened, receive an apology, or just have your concerns heard. In the first instance, you might want to try raising the concern with the person, or organisation, providing your care.
If you don't feel able to do this, you can contact us and we will raise your concerns on your behalf.
Making a Complaint
If you still feel dissatisfied and you wish to make a complaint, we can give you information about the appropriate complaints procedure or see the Complaints section for further information.
If you have a positive experience to share, we would like to pass on your compliments to the relevant staff and to share this within the organisation.
