What is a patient advocate?

A patient advocate is somebody who will act on the patient’s behalf or the patient’s family behalf when dealing with the hospital or healthcare service they are attending. A patient advocate will represent the views of those seeking information or making complaints. Health and social care services can be complex and confusing and sometimes patients and their families need some support and guidance through their healthcare experience. Patient advocates can assist them during their healthcare journey.
