Response from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham

Dear Akeel Khan,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your care and treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. We are very sorry that your surgery was delayed resulting in additional pain and discomfort. As a Major Trauma Centre we do sometimes have patients with life threatening injuries who require immediate surgery.

This can then cause delays for other patients awaiting surgery. We appreciate the impact this may have so are looking at ways we can improve the service we provide to all our patients.

If you would like to discuss your concerns with relevant senior staff please make contact via the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). PALS are here to help and can be contacted by phone 0121 371 4400, by email PALS@uhb.nhs.uk, via the hospital website www.uhb.nhs.uk/pals-form or in person by dropping in between 9am – 5pm (Mon-Fri) to the PALS office located near the Information Desk in the main entrance of the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
