Comments & Complaints
We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our Practice. We are aware, however, that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. We would wish such matters to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.
If you have feedback, comments, concerns or a complaint, please let us know.
Complaints Handling Procedure
Stage one: early, local resolution
We will try to resolve complaints quickly, within 5 working days, if we can.
Stage two: investigation
For complex complaints, or where further investigations is needed, or if you are unhappy with our response at Stage one.
We will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and will aim to provide a full response within 20 working days.
A copy of our Complaints Handling Procedure is available below or from reception.
If you have any suggestions about how we can improve our service, please let us know by phone, in writing, via our website, or in person.
