Island Health

We can investigate complaints about health authorities and hospitals. Before you make a complaint to us, we want to make sure you’ve tried to resolve your complaint directly with the people involved. Here’s the complaint information for you and some tips on how to make your complaint.

How to Complain to Island Health

If you have concerns about the quality of care you or a loved one received you can contact the Patient Care Quality Office for your health region. If you are not satisfied with how your complaint was dealt with by the Patient Care Quality Office you may request a review by the Patient Care Quality Review Board.
