Does anyone know if this form can be used to make a complaint against the health service?  Whilst I see the notices in bars and shops etc, I have yet to see one in a hospital.- thank you

Yes. Our medical centre has them on the counter. Haven't been to a hospital for a long time but imagine you could ask at reception.

They MUST be available in every establishment which deals with the public, hospitals, bars, police stations etc.  If you ask for the form (top and two copies) and it is not supplied, then call the Policia Local. They should attend, demand the form and if not available they should issue an on the spot fine and close the establishment.

Thank you both very much.  I can't see the local police closing a hospital so if I am treated next time the way I was last time then I will certainly ask for the form knowing that they have to provide one.

The first time I asked for the forms at the National Police, on behalf of  a victim of crime who was having problems making a crime report, the police said they did not have them. When I said should I now call the Policia Local,  the Comisario (the chief at the station) came down to put things right immediately. He was very concerned and did not want a complaint recorded against his station.

So do not under estimate the system.

Of course a public concern like a hospital would of course have the forms, just as the police did,  albeit that might be a little reluctant to produce them.   By showing you know how the system works, I am sure they will jump to attention and resolve your grievance.


PS   I have previous posted who one completes the forms and the process entailed.

Goodness me, you are so helpful.  I shall print that off and take it with me.   I had so much trouble last time I went for these scans and the  female operative was so rude and dismissive and I was kept waiting more that 2 hours after my appointment time and not allowed to go to the toilet.  Hopefully thiss next time will be much better.


Thank you so much once again.

You should find that list of Rights and Obligations displayed in the hospital, if not ask for a copy. They are printed in Spanish and English, and maybe other languages too,

I believe it is just about the same in every Region, but I stand to be corrceted.
