Prospect Hospice aims to provide an excellent service to all our patients and their families and carers. We do recognise, however, that from time to time people may be dissatisfied in some way with their experiences. It’s important for us to know the details so that we can address any issues. We consider complaints to be a very valuable source of feedback, which provides us with an opportunity to improve our services and our reputation.
We will take the opportunity to learn from your feedback and believe that complaints can help us to prevent an issue escalating and over time can reduce the number of complaints.
