Our Patient Advice and Complaints Team (PACT) works with patients and staff to improve our service by:
- Offering advice and support to patients, their families and carers

- Helping to sort out problems quickly on your behalf
- The advice we provide is free and confidential
What to do if you have concerns…
First, raise your concerns ‘locally’ with the ward (via the Ward Nurse Manager) or department that your concerns relate to, as this will often result in a timely and satisfactory resolution. Please be assured that should you raise a concern it will not affect your care or treatment in any way.
Helping Empower Loved Ones and Patients
If your concerns have been unable to be resolved directly with staff on a ward, or are urgent, you can contact our Matron Help Phone. The Matron Help Phone is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for patients and families to raise immediate concerns about care on a ward.
To contact the Matron Help Phone, call 0151 706 3377.
Our Patient Advice and Complaints Team (PACT) is also available to discuss your concerns.
Call 0151 706 4903 (if we cannot take your call, please leave an answer machine message and we will return your call as soon as possible).
