Complaints and Compliments

Your feedback is important to us. To give us feedback click here.

Receiving compliments and complaints is important to ensuring good quality, local health care at our practice. This helps us to find out more about what we’re getting right and what we can improve on.

We hope this will help you make your feelings and experiences known to the appropriate people. Should you have a complaint, we hope this page will give you more information on what to do, who to contact, and what happens next.

The practice operates a complaints procedure as outlined by the NHS.

How to complain:

We hope that most problems can be resolved easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If you still wish to make a complaint, please inform a member of the practice as soon as possible. The time constraint of raising a complaint is 12 months from the occurrence, or 12 months from the time you become aware of the matter, about which you wish to complain.
