Complaints / Comments

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.

Simply contact the Practice Manager and she will set all the necessary wheels in motion. Further written information is available on the complaints procedure from reception. We are continually striving to improve our service.

 

Alternatively, you could pass your complaint to NHS England:

  • By e-mail to, england.contactus@nhs.net with ‘For the attention of the complaints manager’ in the subject line.
  • By telephone, on 0300 311 2233
  • Or by post at:
    NHS Commissioning Board
    PO Box 16738
    Redditch
    B97 9PT

Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated and a suggestion box is located in the waiting area.
