Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS)

Patient Advice and Liaison Service helpdeskPALS is a free, informal, confidential help and advice service for patients, carers and their families.  It is there to help you when you need advice, have concerns or don’t know where to turn.

All NHS trusts (for example hospitals, community services, mental health trusts) have their own PALS department.  However you can also contact PALS at the CCG with queries relating to any of the above services and you will be offered advice or signposted to the appropriate place.

PALS enquiries relating to primary care services (GP services, dentists, optometrists and pharmacists) should be directed to NHS England.

PALS will:

  • Help you get the information you need about the NHS
  • Listen and respond to your concerns, suggestions or queries
  • Sort out problems quickly on your behalf in an informal and friendly manner
  • Use your feedback to help improve the services that we deliver
