How can we help you?

We look out for your rights, provide a channel for improvements and offer all the information you will need, as well as offering help with bureaucracy. You will find a Citizen's Advice Office located in the main lobby of each of the three hospitals that make up the Vall d'Hebron Campus: the General Hospital; the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital; the Women's Hospital and the Children's Hospital.

We support you in your stay at the hospital, particularly on your first contact with the centre. We offer accessible, direct and barrier-free service. We want you to feel supported when you need information (personal, medical or social) and that you enjoy absolute confidentiality.

At the Citizen’s advice service, we help you with any bureaucratic procedures you might have to carry out at the hospital, be it requesting a second opinion, offering thanks to staff who have helped you or filing a complaint. We integrate patient opinions and offer a space for participation for the public.

Spiritual Pastoral Care

Illness can affect all dimensions of a person: the physiological, the psychic, as well as the spiritual. Religious pastoral care for the sick is a service for patients and their relatives who wish to use it, and consists of facilitating a relationship of spiritual support. If you require this service, you should let a nurse know. The nurse will deal with your request.
