Complaints and Compliments

Comments & Complaints:

The Practice strives to provide the best possible clinical care for all patients and the highest levels of "customer care" at all times.

However, sometimes it does not always go to plan for a variety of reasons resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint.

It is important for all concerned that matters are resolved quickly, effectively and amicably as possible, so please contact The Practice if there are concerns or issues that require remedial action.

To pursue a complaint please contact Mrs Sharon Jarvis, the Practice Manager to ensure any issue is dealt with professionally and in the most appropriate way.
