Complaints & Comments

We operate a complaints policy in line with NHS complaints procedure. There are two stages to the complaint process.

Complaints regarding the OOH service should be made directly to NHS 111 on 01737 363866.

 

Stage One: Should you have a complaint or wish to comment about the service you have received from the Practice, this should in the first instance be raised either by writing to, or speaking directly with the Patient Services Manager at the surgery that you usually attend.

It is advised that where possible you contact your practice in the first instance.  However, if you prefer not to talk to us you can take your complaint to NHS England either by email at england.contactus@nhs.net or by telephone on 0300 311 2233.

This First Stage process is called local resolution, and most cases are resolved at this stage.

Stage Two: If, having gone through the First Stage of the complaints process you are still unhappy, you can refer the matter to the Parlimentary and Health Service Ombudsman, who are independent of the NHS and government. You can contact them on 0345 015 4033.
