Comments & Complaints
Whilst we make every effort to provide you with the highest standard of care we appreciate that you may feel less than satisfied at times. If you have a complaint, in the first instance please discuss it with a member of staff or, if you prefer, the Practice Manager. You may be asked to put your complaint in writing, which we will respond to and investigate. We would like to inform all our patients that if they need to make a complaint, it will be dealt with without any discrimination from our practice.

We would be grateful if you were to complete the NHS Friends and Family Test cards located on the front reception desk.
Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think of your experience - what you like and what you think we could improve. Ultimately, you're helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.
If you'd prefer to give your comments anonymously, then please do so. If you do leave your contact details then we might get in touch, to talk to you about your feedback so we can better understand your views.
