Feedback and Complaints

We constantly strive to provide a high quality service to all our patients. We are happy to receive suggestions as to how our service may be improved. Comments should be directed to the practice manager.

We aim to provide quality family health care at the surgery but acknowledge that occasionally things do not go as smoothly as we would like.

How you can make a complaint: 
You have the option to either have your complaint investigated by the surgery or by the complaints team at NHS Commissioning Team.

If you wish us to investigate your complaint:

  • Speak to anyone at the surgery who will take details from you
  • Write to the surgery detailing your concerns –
