Complaints & Suggestions
The Practice has a complaint’s procedure, which ensures that all complaints are dealt with swiftly and effectively.
- If you wish to make a complaint, please write to our Practice Manager, who will decide how best to undertake the investigation.
- You can normally expect to receive a response within two days. Occasionally if we have to make many enquiries it may take a little longer, but we will keep you informed.
- We will try to address your concerns fully, provide you with an explanation and discuss any action that may be required. We hope you will feel satisfied that we have dealt with the matter thoroughly. However if you wish to continue with your complaint, we will direct you to the appropriate authorities who will be able to help you.
- Our Practice is not able to deal with questions of legal liability or compensation. We hope you will use it to allow us to look into and if necessary, put right any problems you have identified.
- We have to respect our duty of confidentiality to patients. A patient’s consent will be required if a complaint is not made by that patient in person
- If you need assistance with making a complaint , Trafford have an Independent Advocacy service (ICA) that can help you tel no: 0808 801 0390.
