COMPLIMENTS OR CONCERNS
Each communication from a patient is important to us. If anyone has a concern, our aim is to ensure that it is dealt-with quickly and resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
Practice Complaints Procedure
If you do have a concern, in the first instance you may get in touch with a member of our reception team who will try to help sort the matter out for you. If the matter remains unresolved you can ask to speak to supervisory staff. If you feel it may be better to make a written complaint you may write to us about it. If you are complaining on behalf of someone you MUST also send a signed an dated consent letter which clearly indicates that the patient authorises you to handle the complaint on their behalf.
As a last resort, if you are unhappy with our response you may write to the Health Service Ombudsman.
As an alternative to the Practice Complaints Procedure, you may write to NHS England.
If you feel that you have received good service and would like to compliment the staff involved, we would be delighted too pass on remarks. If you have any concerns, comments or suggestions, you may complete the form below, drop us a line or call the surgery and speak to one of our reception staff who will inform the Practice Manager.
What is ICAS?
ICAS stands for the Independent Complaints Advocacy Service. It is a free and confidential service that is independent of the NHS and tailored to individual client need.
Patients who want and are able to raise their concerns are empowered to do so.
Patients with more complex needs have access to specialist advocates who can support them through the official complaints process.
