About your care at RJAH
Patients are invited to leave their feedback electronically on the day of discharge or after visiting clinic. There are comment cards displayed in all our wards and departments for patients to complete.
If you have any concerns about your care or the services at this hospital, you can talk to the staff involved in your care at the time or the ward manager. The matrons and the PALS Officer can also assist to address people’s concerns avoiding the need for the patient to write a letter of complaint. By responding quickly and efficiently there will be a better chance of early resolution.

Get involved with other local organisations
Local Healthwatch bodies are independent consumer champions for health and social care. Their remit covers hospitals, GPs, pharmacists, opticians, community health services, residential care, mental health and children’s services.
Healthwatch gathers information and opinions from patients, carers, service users and the wider public about health and social care services, then makes sure those views are used to improve services for all.
They also provide information and signposting services to support people in making choices about health and social care services and how to access them.
They have a statutory authority to visit locations where health and social care services are being delivered, observe what is happening, and report findings. They are keen to hear from anybody who is interested in volunteering opportunities or to become members.
