    Feedback- See, Hear, Act

    A high quality service wants to know what it does well and how it can do better in the future. One way we can find out is to hear the views about the care given to customers. We want you to tell us about your experience and wider observations using our see, hear, act checklists. This feedback will help us recognise good practice and address concerns, resulting in how we can do things better in the future.
