Complaints Procedure: how we respond to your complaint

A letter of acknowledgement will be sent to you within two working days. Providing we have all relevant information; the investigation will commence

Your complaint will then be investigated by the relevant department, who will speak to the staff involved and contact you to discuss the issues raised and agree how to take matters forward

We aim to provide a response within 20 working days or within an alternative negotiated timescale. Sometimes it may take longer if, for example, a member of staff is on holiday and we need his/her statement. Please note that the 20 working days will commence as of the date that we receive appropriate consent from the patient / a signed copy of the complaint e-mail is received

Our response will offer a full explanation of the circumstances which led to your complaint and, where appropriate, advise what action we will take to make improvements. We regularly review complaints and are committed to improving our healthcare services for patients based on our patients' experiences

If you are not happy with our response, you can let us know and we will endeavour to reinvestigate any outstanding points or concerns
