CPFT Complaints Service

Complaints

The Complaints Team provides a service for people who wish to make a formal complaint about the services provided by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT). The services provided by CPFT include mental health, learning disability, social care and community services for adult and older people, child and adolescent mental health services across Cambridgeshire, and children's community services in Peterborough.

CPFT encourages feedback and complaints about the services we provide. It is important for CPFT to learn from complaints and make any necessary changes to improve the quality of our services.

Making a complaint

If you wish to make a complaint about the care or treatment provided to you or someone you know, please do not hesitate to contact our Complaints Team or the Trust's Chief Executive. If your concerns need to be resolved immediately, please contact the team directly or get in touch with our Patient Advice and Liaison Service. Further information about this service can be found through this link

A leaflet about how to make a complaint can be found at the bottom of this page. The Complaints, Concerns and Compliments Policy can be found through this link.
