How to raise a concern or make a complaint about our services
We welcome all feedback, positive or negative and see feedback and complaints as a way of learning and improving our services.
At Jersey Hospice Care we are committed to listening to anyone who thinks that we can improve our services and we will respond to any feedback, concerns, or complaints we receive. Where possible, we hope to achieve an immediate and informal resolution, but commit to investigate further if necessary and to share the outcomes of what we learn and any changes we plan to adopt to improve our services.
Jersey Hospice Care is committed to continuous improvement and uses feedback as part of its quality assurance processes in order to provide the best possible care and services to all users. We therefore welcome feedback from patients, relatives and carers, as well as members of the public regarding our standards of service and activities, our actions or lack of actions, or our employees, volunteers, or those directly involved in the delivery of that service.
As part of that commitment we will:
- take time to listen to your concerns and ensure that we fully understand the issue being raised
- support you in making a complaint if needed
- keep the details of your complaint confidential
- handle all complaints fairly, efficiently, and effectively
- seek to address and resolve the issue immediately and informally where possible
- investigate further if necessary and share the outcomes of what we learn and any changes we plan to adopt to improve our services
