It is the policy of the Surgery to give an effective, prompt and positive response to all complaints from patients and to ensure that such complaints assist the Practice to improve its services in the future.

Anyone wishing to make a complaint must do so within 12 months of an incident or of becoming aware of the matter complained about. A complainant can be the patient/person affected or someone can complain on behalf of a patient, with their written consent, or if the individual is physically or mentally incapable of making the complaint themselves.

Where a written complaint is received, or a verbal complaint is recorded for later attention, it will be dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible. All written complaints will be acknowledged within 3 working days and a prompt timescale will be agreed for a response.

If you are unhappy with our response, please contact NHS England (the body responsible for Primary Care)
