Feedback and complaints

We take all complaints seriously and we aim to resolve them with you, as quickly as possible.

We work to NHS standards in terms of resolving complaints. We aim to acknowledge complaints and let you know the next steps we plan to take within 5 working days. We aim to resolve your complaint within this timeframe too, if we can.

If we need to ask a doctor to review your complaint, we aim to come back to you within 21 working days. We’ll let you know if this is the case for your complaint.

If you don’t feel your complaint has been resolved after these steps, please visit for details of who to contact.
