PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service)

The patient advice and liaison service (PALS) provides impartial advice and help with queries, support and issues you may be having with services provided by KPJ Kuching Specialist Hospital. In line with the Patient Data Protection Act (PDPA), this is entirely confidential and available to patients, their families, and their support/carers.

How can PALS help me?

If you have a query or concern we would suggest speaking with the ward/department nursing sister or matron in charge before contacting PALS, as they will most likely be able to resolve your concerns at that time. However if you do not feel your issue has been fully answered or resolved, or you don’t fully understand what staff has said, PALS would be happy to assist you.

There are also times when you may feel more comfortable speaking to someone that does not work in the area you are being treated, even if you just need more information about the right place to go.

What can PALS do?

Answer your queries or provide information about services provided by Kuching Specialist Hospital

Open 8.30 am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 12.30pm, Saturday, except public holidays.
