Complaints

In the first instance please discuss your complaint with the staff member concerned. Where the issue cannot be resolved at this stage, please contact Evelyn Kraus Assistant Practice Manager or Kim Hookings Practice Manager who will try to resolve the issue and offer you further advice on the complaints procedure.

How to make a formal complaint

If your problem cannot be resolved at this stage and you wish to make a formal complaint, please let us know as soon as possible, ideally within a matter of days. This will enable the practice to get a clear picture of the circumstances surrounding the complaint.

If it is not possible to raise your complaint immediately, please let us have details of your complaint within the following timescales:

· Within 12 months of the incident that caused the problem

OR

· Within 12 months from when the complaint comes to your notice.

The Practice will acknowledge your complaint within three working days.

When the practice looks into your complaint it aims to:

· Ascertain the full circumstances of the complaint

· Make arrangements for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this

· Make sure you receive an apology, where this is appropriate

· Identify what the practice can do to make sure the problem does not happen again.

 

Directly to the Practice 

You can make a complaint in person, via the telephone, or using this online form.

Complaining on behalf of someone else

Please note that the Western Road Medical Centre keeps strictly to the rules of medical confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, the practice needs to know that you have their permission to do so. A note or consent form signed by the person concerned will be required, unless they are incapable of providing this due to illness or disability.
