Complaints Procedure

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 concern or complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.

To alert us to your concern or complaint, please contact the Practice Manager, Sally Burfoot:

 

  • In person or by,
  • Phone - 01342 317 820
  • Email - sally.burfoot@nhs.net or,
  • Fax - 0844 3879912

 

We operate a practice complaints procedure as part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints and our system meets national criteria.

Our practice complaints leaflet gives details of the procedure and is available from reception, in our patient waiting area or by printing a Complaints Procedure Leaflet using the link below.
