Comments & Complaints

pad_and_penWe 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.

To pursue a complaint please contact the Practice Manager. Please put your complaint in writing addressed to the practice manager. Further written information is available in our complaints procedure leaflet available at reception.

Please note, NHS staff have the right to be treated with respect at all times, and will not tolerate rudeness of any kind. This includes aggressive behaviour or comments and swearing. 

We are continually striving to improve our service. Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated. 

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:

  1. Getting it right
  2. Being customer focused
  3. Being open and accountable
  4. Acting fairly and proportionately
  5. Putting things right
  6. 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.
