We welcome ideas for improving our services. We should be grateful if you would put your suggestions in the box provided in the reception area. We undertake regular surveys to obtain patients’ views and consider how best to implement the results. We treat all our patients as individuals, respect different cultures and welcome ethnic groups.
We are fortunate that these are very infrequent at our practice. We hope this reflects the good service we offer to all our patients. However, there is always room for improvement and we would encourage any suggestions. Incase you have a complaint, please contact the practice manager and allow us an opportunity to set things right on an informal basis.
We have an in-house complaints procedure, please see poster in reception and our leaflet.
