Complaints Policy


< Back to policies & procedures

In the first instance please discuss your complaint with the staff member concerned.

Where the issue cannot be resolved at this stage, please contact the practice manager in writing who will try to resolve the issue and offer you further advice on the complaints procedure.

If your problem cannot be resolved at this stage and you wish to make a formal complaint, please let us know as soon as possible.

This will enable the practice to get a clear picture of the circumstances surrounding the complaint.

If it is not possible to raise your complaint immediately, please let us have details of your complaint within the following timescales:

  • Within one year of the incident that caused the problem
  • The practice will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days.

We may arrange a meeting with you to discuss the complaint, to agree with you how the complaint is going to be investigated and the timescale for this to be completed.

When the practice looks into your complaint it aims to:

  • Ascertain the full circumstances of the complaint
  • Make arrangements for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this
  • Identify what the practice can do to make sure the problem does not happen again.

Leaflets are at reception.
