Providing feedback or making a complaint

Naas General Hospital is committed to listening and responding to patients, staff, all service users and their families and learning from their experiences and feedback to improve our services.

Accordingly the Hospital has a complaints procedure in place designed to ensure that:

  • Service users are encouraged and facilitated to bring their concerns or complaints to the attention of the hospital.
  • All reported concerns/complaints are responded to promptly and appropriately.
  • All concerns/complaints are resolved, where practicable, to the satisfaction of all persons involved. This is consistent with the HSE core values; Care, Compassion, Trust and Learning.

How to provide feedback

If you wish to provide feedback (comment, compliment or complaint) about any aspect of our service please:

  • Tell a staff member: We encourage patients and families to let those involved in their care know if they have a concern. Any concerns should be discussed in the first instance with the manager of the ward or department so that a solution can be found locally.
  • Email your feedback to feedback.naas@hse.ie or to yoursay@hse.ie
  • Complete a Feedback Form and leave it in the identified white Your Service Your Say post boxes provided within many areas in the hospital.
