If you have a complaint or concern about the service you have received from the doctors or any of the staff working at the practice, please let us know.
We operate a practice complaints procedure, which meets national criteria, as part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints. Complaints should be addressed to the Practice Manager or any of the doctors.
Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Practice Manager in order to discuss your concerns. She will explain the complaints procedure to you and ensure that your complaint is dealt with promptly.
The Health Service Ombudsman
The Health Service Ombudsman has published a booklet that describes the ‘six principles for remedy’ in relation to complaints handling and involves:
- Getting it right
- Being customer focused
- Being open and accountable
- Acting fairly and proportionately
- Putting things right
- Seeking continuous improvements
If you remain unhappy after everything has been done to try to resolve your concern or complaint you have the right to approach the Ombudsman.
