Comments & Complaints
The doctors and staff are very interested to know what you think of the services we offer at the surgery.
There may be times when you wish to comment about our work, or have a good idea for an improvement.
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.
We take all these matters seriously.
If you have a comment, complaint or suggestion then please write to or ask for the Practice Manager. If you would prefer to speak to a doctor or nurse, ask reception for an appointment.
Please ask our Receptionists for a copy of our complaints leaflet.
