Please note in line with current NHS England advice, our complaints procedure had been paused for three months with immediate effect due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
"Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are supporting a system wide “pause” of the NHS complaints process which will allow all health care providers in all sectors to concentrate their efforts on the front-line duties and responsiveness to COVID-19.
As of 26 March 2020, the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman has stopped accepting new NHS complaints and has stopped work on open cases."
If patients don’t wish to complain direct to the practice then their route in the first instance should be NHS England. If patients are not happy with their response from NHS England then the next step is to contact the Ombudsman. Please see contact details below.
