We value your comments, we take on board all feedback sent to us. You can send us your comments by using our Comments & Suggestions form.

Who to talk to?
Most complaints can be resolved at a local level.
Please speak to a member of staff if you have a complaint; they will be able to help you with the next step. Alternatively, please ask to speak to Petra Butler our Patient Experience Manager.
A complaint can be made verbally or in writing.
Alternatively, you can pick up a copy of the complaints form from the reception desk at either site. Clinical complaints will be investigated by the named clinician, or senior partner.
