Complaints process

Complaints are treated with confidentiality at NHW and are all fully investigated by our staff to fully understand what has happened and provide you with an accurate response to your concerns. They are an important way of us identifying where we can improve our performance across the organisation.

We aim to fully investigate your complaint and provide a full response to your concerns within 30 days wherever possible.

The first step with any complaint is to let us know of your concerns so we can respond to you. If this does not resolve the issue, or if you feel you cannot approach us for any reason, you are able to contact the Health Complaints Commissioner.  This service is free, confidential and impartial and aims to resolve complaints as an independent body.

About the Victorian Healthcare Experience Survey (VHES)

The VHES program collects and analyses the experience of recent users of Victoria’s public health system.

The VHES program has three identified objectives.

  • Provide meaningful, useful, accessible and timely information on patient experience to health services and government audiences to stimulate quality and safety improvements.
  • Provide meaningful, useful and trusted information, as well as actionable insights on the relationship between processes of care and experience of different patients, to our audiences.
  • Collect and share patient-reported experience across the healthcare system to improve transparency and accountability.

The survey is conducted by Ipsos, an independent contractor, on behalf of the Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI), a division of the Department of Health (the department).

Participants are invited to participate in the survey via email or SMS invitation and are able to complete the questionnaire online. Alternatively, patients may call the 1800 helpline listed on their invitation and complete a telephone interview.
