Comments and Complaints
We welcome comments, suggestions, observations as well as concerns as this feedback helps us to provide the best possible service to you. We encourage you to give us feedback whenever you feel prompted to do so. You way want to share some praise, or feel that we could have managed your care differently. We would always like to feel that we can resolve any concerns promptly and informally. This may not always be the case and if you wish to make a formal complaint, please either telephone, email or write to Jenny Vallely, practice manager. Please click here for a leaflet with more details.
We endeavor, wherever possible, to resolve patient complaints at practice level but you still have the right to address your complaint to the The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman for England:
Helpline : 0345 015 403,
Website : www.ombudsman.org.uk,
e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org.

We constantly explore ways in which we can improve our service and from time to time will be asking for your opinions and suggestions regarding specific topics. This will be in the form of a short questionnaire. If, in the meantime, you wish to express your views, please write to Jenny Vallely, practice manager.
