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
