Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) is a confidential service that helps patients, their families and carers to find answers to questions or concerns regarding the care or treatment received from NHS Trusts in Lincolnshire.
As a patient, relative or carer you may sometimes need to turn to someone for on-the-spot help, advice and support. This is what the Patient Advice and Liaison Service does on a daily basis.
We provide confidential advice and support, helping you to sort out any concerns you may have about the care provided by the NHS and guiding you through the different services available.
We are here to help:
If you or your relatives have concerns about any aspects of care or treatment received, try initially to raise the issue with the person/service involved.
If you feel they cannot help, or you are not comfortable talking to them, contact PALS on 0300 123 9553

Our aim is to agree the best way forward to deal with a problem and get it resolved quickly.
