Complaints

The staff and doctors at the practice are committed to provide high quality healthcare and services to patients.

How to complain  

It is best to tell a member of staff about your problems or concerns as soon as they arise and we will try and sort them out.

If you wish to make a complaint, please let us have details of your complaint as soon as possible so we can find out what happened.

if you have a complaint and you wish to discuss your concerns, you can ask to speak to - Practice Manager 

You need to make your complaint within 12 months of the incident that caused the problem or within 12 months of discovering that you have a problem relating to a specific incident.

Complaining on behalf of someone else

Medical records are protected under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else we need to know that you have the permission to do so.

What we will do 

We will contact you about your complaint within three working days and offer to discuss with you the best way to investigate it, including time scales for a reply.  We will aim to:



    • Find out what happened and what went wrong

    • Invite you to discuss the problem with those involved if you wish to do so.

    • Apologise where this is appropriate 

    • Identify what we can do to make sure that the problem does not happen again
