Handling Feedback & Complaints procedure

Cappagh Hospital Foundation is committed to ensuring that all our communications and dealings with the general public and our supporters are of the highest possible standard. We listen and respond to the views of the general public and our supporters so that we can continue to improve.

We welcome both positive and negative feedback. Therefore we aim to ensure that:

  • It is as easy as possible to make a complaint;
  • We treat as a complaint any clear expression of dissatisfaction with our operations which calls for a response;
  • We deal with it quickly and politely;
  • We learn from complaints, use them to improve, and monitor them at our Board.
  • We respond accordingly – for example, with an explanation, or an apology where we have got things wrong, and information on any action taken etc.
