Cardinal Court Focus Group

Healthwatch Leeds staff and volunteers visited Cardinal Court on the 21st December 2017 between 10:30am and 12 noon.


During the focus group, we found high levels of satisfaction with the care service provided on site.
However, no one in the focus group knew they could ring an independent body i.e. Leeds City Council complaint’s department if
they are not happy with the service.
