Our trust uses experience gained from dealing with complaints to improve mental health services within Birmingham and Solihull. The trust encourages complainants concerns to be addressed by relevant front line staff, for example, a ward manager or head of department, however, when this isn't possible, the complaints department can be contacted.
The complaints department provides information and assistance to service users, their relatives and visitors who wish to complain about the service our trust provides. It also gives help and advice to staff who are involved in the investigation of a complaint.
Complaints received by the department should be formally acknowledged within three working days. Our aim is to provide a full response as speedily as possible, however if we are unable to provide a response within the agreed timescale, you will be contacted to discuss the delay and to agree a new timescale in which a full response is to be provided.
