Introduction

As part of our aim to continuously improve the quality of our services we need to know what you think about the services we provide.

We want to hear from you when we get things right, when you have suggestions on how we can improve our service and when we get things wrong. We hope this page will help answer any questions you may have about how to compliment us, make a comment or make a complaint.

Comments

Any comments you may have about the services we provide can be made in person, by telephone (01603 677500), by email (complaints.nphc@nhs.net) or by completing one of the feedback forms located at Reception.

Compliments

If you wish to compliment us on the service provided please let us know, and in writing if possible, so we can make sure we can continue these standards. Either send your compliments to the address above or hand them into reception.

Concerns and Complaints

If you have a concern or complaint about any part of the service we provide please let us know. If you let us know immediately by raising your concerns with staff directly involved we can try to put things right straight away.

If you are unable to do this, or would prefer not to, you can write to the Service Manager, Mrs Jane Horton or email your complaint to complaints.nphc@nhs.net

All concerns or complaints will be dealt with in line with the Local Authority Social Care and NHS Complaints (England) Regulations 2009 and therefore you must let us have the details of your complaint within 12 months of the incident causing concern or within 12 months from the time that it came to your notice.

If your complaint involves another organisation you will receive one co-ordinated response.

Complaining on behalf of someone else

Please note that we abide to the strict rules of medical confidentiality. If you wish to complain on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have their permission to do so.

We will require written, signed authorisation from the person concerned, unless they are incapable of providing this.



Following receipt of your complaint we will:

  • treat you with respect and courtesy
  • acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days
  • deal with your complaint efficiently and investigate it properly
  • provide you with the outcome of the investigation into your complaint
  • provide the health authority with an annual report about the complaints we have received. The report will include information about what actions have been taken or recommendations that have been made.
  • If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint you have the right to ask The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman to undertake an independent review of your case.
