Compliments, comments and complaints
We will always do our best to provide a great service and great patient care. However sometime we do get it wrong. If something has happened which you are unhappy about, in the first instance you can discuss the matter with our Practice Manager, Lisa, over the telephone, and she will try to put things right and make improvements where possible. It may be possible for her to answer your questions and resolve your query straight away. Please be aware making a complaint about our practice will not adversely affect your current or future treatment. We always welcome feedback.
The Practice is always happy to pass on positive feedback and compliments to our staff when they have delivered an excellent service. Please raise with Practice Manager
The Practice is always open to suggestions from patient and PPG members - Please speak to reception about contacting the Practice Manager
