The Trust aims to put patients at the heart of everything that the East London Foundation Trust does and provide the highest standards of care. They want to hear what you think to help them improve the services they provide. They are keen to hear when things have not gone well so they can learn from your experience. It is also good to hear when things have gone well so that they can build on good practice.
PALS is a confidential service which supports patients, relatives, carers or members of the public to get advice and information about our services and in navigating the NHS. Download our PALS leaflet here
PALS can help when you have concerns about the treatment and care we provide, when you need advice or don't know where to turn.
PALS provides confidential advice:
- To help you sort out any problems or issues you may have with a Trust service
- To enable you to make decisions about your care and treatment
PALS staff have a lot of knowledge and experience in sorting out problems that patients encounter with their services. They work closely with Trust staff to make sure you get the information you need. They aim to resolve concerns quickly, by liaising and working with staff.
