In this practice we take complaints very seriously indeed and try to ensure that all our patients are pleased with their experience of our service. Our aim is to react to complaints in the way in which we would want our complaint about a service to be handled. We learn from every mistake that we make and we respond to customers’ concerns in a caring and sensitive way.
If you do have a complaint or concern about the care or service you have received from this practice, please bring this to the attention of any member of the team via email, telephone or in writing to the practice.
We operate aninformal, confidential in house procedure which we hope will resolve any problems quickly and efficiently.
