Comments, Suggestions & Complaints
We offer a practice complaints procedure to deal with comments, suggestions and complaints about the services we provide. Any of our staff will give you further information. Our aim is to give you the highest possible standard of service and we try to deal swiftly with any problems that may occur. In the first instance, complaints should be directed to the Practice Manager or the Complaints Manager.
If you are unhappy at the outcome of your complaint, you can also contact or report your complaint to:
