We aim to give a friendly and professional service to all our patients. However, if you have any concerns about any aspect of our service, please let us know. Speak to whoever you feel most comfortable - your GP, practice manager or our reception staff will be happy to help. In the majority of cases, concerns can be resolved quite easily. However, if you feel we have not dealt with the issues you have raised as you would wish, you can write to the Complaints manager at Hounsfield Surgery, where we will acknowledge your complaint within three working days and advise you of the timescale required to investigate the issue. Once we have investigated the issue we will be in a position to offer you an explanation, or meeting with the people involved.
Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) can often help resolve any problems before they become formal complaints. Please see the Patient Advice and Liaison Service link on our website.
If the your complaint has not been resolved by the practice please contact NHS England using the following contact details. Telephone number 0300 311 2233 or email on England.firstname.lastname@example.org
