NHS Advocacy

Our NHS Complaints Advocacy service will support York residents who have a concern or complaint about any aspect of their NHS care or treatment.

This service will help individuals to:

  • Understand their rights and make informed choices and ensure that public and patient voices are heard and respected by those who make decisions about NHS healthcare services.
  • Support patients to raise their concerns or make a complaint about an NHS service they have received.
  • Enable members of the public and patients to feel more empowered, autonomous and informed about standards of healthcare.
  • Feedback into campaigning organisations such as Healthwatch York to improve standards of care and treatment within NHS services in York.
  • You do not have to make a formal complaint if you don’t want to. If you have any concerns about your NHS care and treatment we can still support you to feedback your experiences without making a complaint.
