If you have any complaint or concern about the service you have received from the doctors or staff working for this surgery you are entitled to ask for an explanation.
We operate an informal, in-house complaints procedure to deal with your complaints. This procedure does not deal with matters of legal liability or compensation. In some cases,the in-house procedure is not an appropriate form of investigation, in which case you will be referred to the appropriate person.
How to complain
We hope that most problems can be resolved quickly and easily, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If your problem cannot be sorted out in this way and you wish to make a complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible, ideally, within a matter of days or at most a few weeks. This will enable us to establish what happened more easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint:
Within 12 months of the incident, or from when the matter came to the attention of the complainant.
All written complaints must be addressed to our Clinic Manager who will ensure that it is investigated thoroughly and as speedily as possible. It will be a great help if you are as specific as possible about your complaint.Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Clinic Manager or a telephone call in order to discuss your concerns or please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
