We recognize that navigating through the complex system of health care services and facilities can be overwhelming, especially if you are facing health challenges.
If we have not met your expectations, we are committed to working with you to find a reasonable resolution. Your feedback is our chance to improve the care or services we provide.
What's the first step to resolving a complaint (if the patient or resident is still receiving care services)?
Speak with the person who provided the service, or to the manager of the area. Complaints are best addressed and resolved at the time and place where they occur.
What if my complaint is not resolved (or if the patient or resident is no longer receiving services related to this complaint)?
Contact the Patient Care Quality Office (PCQO), who will act as the central access point for complaints that are not addressed at the service delivery level. The PCQO provides a clear, consistent, timely and transparent process for patients to register complaints about the care they receive from Fraser Health Complaints can be made in person, by phone, or in writing.

What can I expect if I submit a complaint?

- Deal with your complaint promptly and fairly
- Formally register your complaint
- Contact you within 2 business days of receipt of your complaint and provide a response to your concerns within 40 business days that includes any decisions and actions taken as a result of your complaint.
What if I am still not satisfied?
If you don’t feel your concerns were resolved based on the response of the Fraser Health Patient Care Quality Office, you may wish to contact the Patient Care Quality Review Board for an independent review of the process regarding care quality complaints. The Patient Care Quality Review Board is a separate organization from Fraser Health that reports to the Minister of Health.
