What PALS doesn't do - We do not offer counselling, advocacy, diagnosis or any detailed medical information.

Your views can make a difference.  We recognise the importance of your experience of NHS services and would like you to tell us what you and/or your family think about the services provided.  We can do this by passing on your comments, compliments, concerns or ideas to a member of staff.  Your views are important to us and will be used to improve services.
