Comments, Complaints and Suggestions

 

Our aim is to provide the highest level of care for all our patients.  We will always be willing to hear if there is any way that you think that we can improve the service we provide.

 

Making a complaint

 

If you have any complaints or concerns about the service that you have received from the doctors or staff working for this practice, please let us know. 

 

We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, 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 – because 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 6 months of the incident that caused the problem; or

    • Within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem, provided that is within 12 months of the incident.

Our complaints procedure is designed to make sure that we settle any complaints as quickly as possible.

 

We shall acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and aim to have looked into any complaint within

10 working days of the date when you raised it with us.

We shall then be in a position to offer you an explanation, or a meeting with the people involved.

 

When we look into your complaint, we shall aim to:

·       find out what happened and what went wrong

·       make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this

·       make sure you receive an apology, where appropriate

·       identify what we can do to make sure the problem doesn’t happen again.

 

At the end of the investigation your complaint will be discussed with you in detail, either in person or in writing.

 

 

Complaining on behalf of someone else

 

Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of medical confidentiality.  If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have his or her permission to do so.  A note signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless they are incapable (because of illness) of providing this.
