Bounty Mutiny: how to complain to your hospital

Bounty Mutiny logoHave you had a bad experience with a sales rep during your stay on a hospital ward? Need to get it off your chest? Want to get on board with the Bounty Mutiny

We've had some great breakthroughs with some hospitals, but others are coming back to us and saying 'please let us have more info about local experiences'. Of course, we completely understand that for most women who've just given birth, making a fuss about intrusion on the ward is fairly low down on the priority list.

But once you've left hospital and returned home - even some months after giving birth - you can still let your hospital know about what happened, and tell them you'd like them to reconsider their relationship with Bounty.


How to make a complaint

First off, let us know. Health Minister Dan Poulter has said he'll follow up any specific complaint with the relevant trust. It's really important that we give him as much information as possible, so do email with your experience, the date, and the location of events (including the hospital's name). We can pass this on to the Department of Health and let you know what happens. The more the Department of Health hears from you, the more likely they are to change the policy around Bounty - so as well as making your complaint, you'll be really helping other mums to avoid intrusion.

Secondly, please email the CEO of your hospital trust: email addresses below. And please copy in

Do check out our Bounty Mutiny campaign links for more details, and as ever, please share the links with your friends and networks.
