Response from Barnsley Hospital

Thank you for your feedback Matt. We are sorry you were offended by the way we spoke to you during your stay at the hospital, we do try very hard to make all our patients feel at ease and do not wish to offend in any way.

If you would be so kind as to contact the hospital's Patient Advice and Liaison team and let them know which ward you were on and when we will pass your comments on to the matron for attention.

The PALS team can be contacted on 01226 432430 or email john.armin@nhs.net
