The Ministry of Health (MOH) team strives to provide high-quality services to all of its service users and welcomes all suggestions to improve. If there are occasions when the team is unable to achieve this, a complaint may be appropriate and we seek to provide the public with an opportunity to reach us.
We view complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve our services and procedures for the future, as well as a chance to put things right for the person who makes a complaint.
