Your Feedback

Your experience

At the Regional Neurosciences Centre, we constantly strive to deliver excellent care to all our patients, and are always interested in hearing your views of our service, staff, and the treatment you received.

However, although our staff do all they can to make sure you are treated promptly and effectively, we do acknowledge than in a busy regional centre like ours, things can unfortunately occasionally go wrong. To solve any problems quickly and to learn from such episodes, we know we need to understand how our patients think we can improve our service.

Our staff are here to help

In order for us to address any issues immediately, in the first instance we would ask you to raise any queries you have straight away with the member of staff in charge. If you would prefer to do so after you have left the centre, we would suggest that you get in touch with the relevant staff member via telephone, who will attempt to resolve your problem as soon as possible.
