Suggestions and Complaints




We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice. However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as

quickly, and as amicably, as possible. To pursue a complaint please contact the Lead Receptionist at your surgery site who will deal with your concerns appropriately. Further written information is available regarding the complaints procedure from reception.



If you would like to leave feedback about your experience at the surgery; then you can do so in the following ways:

We would ask that you do not use Facebook with regards to feedback as we will be unable to respond to any concerns raised.

Alternatively you may write to us or contact us by phone. 

Our details can be found on our Contact Us page.
