Non-urgent advice: How to make a complaint

We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice.

However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.

Local Resolution

We will acknowledge your complaint within 2 working days. In many cases it should be possible to resolve your complaint straight away. However, sometimes complaints need fuller investigation. We aim to offer you an explanation within 10 working days of the date when you raised it with us.

To pursue a complaint please complete this form and our Reception Managers shall respond. 

Iff you are dissatisfied with the response from us, please follow the complaints pathway for NHS England.
