Friends and Family Test
The surgery has takes part in the national Friends and Family Test giving patients the chance to leave feedback after every consultation. Patients can leave feedback in person at the surgery, via text message after a reminder prompt, or email us via the contact page.
You can find out more about the Friends and Family Test on the NHS website.
Complaints can be made either face to face, over the telephone, via email or in writing.
Complaints should be addressed to our Practice Manager Amy Yates, or to the Health Professional that you see.
Every complaint will be acknowledged in writing within 5 working days and it will be explained to you when you can expect a further response once an initial investigation has taken place.
We will try our best to fully understand every point of view and will notify you of the outcome.
If you’re not satisfied with this we will invite you to attend the surgery, with a friend if you would like to to discuss the complaint and the findings of our internal investigation.
Where necessary the practice will consider any internal action required to ensure a similar incident does not occur in the future.
If the complaint remains unresolved the complainant will be informed of his/her right to pursue the complaint with The parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.
