Comments & Suggestions
We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice.
However, we are aware that things can sometimes go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is the case, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.
If you are unhappy about the level of care you have received please contact the Practice Manager in the first instance and she will set all the necessary wheels in motion to help resolve the matter. Further written information is available on the complaints procedure from reception. We are continually striving to improve our service. Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated and a suggestion box is located in the waiting area.

- Being customer focused
- Being open and accountable
- Acting fairly and proportionately
- Putting things right
- Seeking continuous improvements
If you remain unhappy after everything has been done to try to resolve your concern or complaint you have the right to approach the Ombudsman.
