The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website may contain images, voices and names of people who have passed away.

Consumer Complaints and Compliments

We welcome both compliments about our service, and complaints when we have not delivered the sort of service you expect.

We recognise that some people find it difficult directly contacting the area they wish to complain about. We also recognise that the Women's and Children's Health Network is a large organisation and you may have had contact with several different areas, even on one day. You may not recall the name of a unit, department, ward or staff member you had contact with.

If you do not wish to contact the area directly, or would like to make a formal complaint, you are welcome to contact the Consumer Feedback Coordinator. You may provide your feedback by telephone or email.

The following form may help with providing written feedback (for either complaints or compliments).



(08) 8161 6710 (direct)
Pager: (08) 8161 7000 – ask for pager 4550



Monday – Friday, 8.00am – 4.00pm
