We aim to provide the very best care and treatment and it is important that we welcome comments and learn from people’s experiences, good or bad. The vast majority of people are happy with the service they receive.

Sometimes though, things might not go as well as expected. When that happens, we need to look at what went wrong so we can try to make it better.

This applies to you if:

  • You are not happy with care or treatment provided by or for the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board
  • If you have any concerns you think we should know about

What is a complaint?

A complaint is when you feel unhappy about any service provided by the NHS. By telling us about your complaint, we can apologise to you, investigate and try to put things right. We will also learn lessons and improve services where they need to be better. There are some things that we cannot deal with under the arrangements, such as:

  • Non NHS healthcare treatment (including private dental treatment)
  • A complaint which was made and investigated under the arrangements that were in place before 1 April 2011
