Comments & Complaints
We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice.
However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.
This practice welcomes the feedback it receives from its patients and uses this as a way to make improvements to the way of working and the services it provides. The practice operates an in-house complaints procedure which is managed by the Practice Manager, Miss Aimee Peraux.
We are continually striving to improve our service. Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated and a suggestion box is located in the waiting area.
What should I do if I wish to make a complaint?
Please contact the practice manager either in person, by phone or in writing stating the nature of your complaint and giving as much details as possible, such as the date, the time, who was involved, what was said and any other information that will help us to investigate.
The practice manager will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and will endeavour to respond to you within 14 working days.
If you would like independent advice on how to make a complaint then you can contact POhWER www.pohwer.net - this is the NHS Complaints Advocacy service that is free, confidential and independent of the NHS
