Any form of complaint can be put in writing to the practice manager and will be acknowledged within two working days. It will then be investigated with the staff involved. The findings will be discussed and a response letter will be sent out to you within ten working days. We also have a suggestion box in the waiting room, if you have any suggestions or comments please put them in the box. You may also speak to the Practice Manager directly. We have a zero tolerance policy and violent patients are reported to the police immediately.
