Who can make a complaint?
Anyone can raise concerns or make a complaint. You can complain about NHS services or treatment you receive or you can complain on behalf of another person.
If you make a complaint on behalf of someone else, please ask their permission before you contact us. We need to safeguard patient confidentiality and the patient’s written consent will be sought before we respond to the issues you have raised on their behalf.
How do I raise a concern or make a complaint?
Although we always try to commission responsibly so that you are provided with the best possible care, we know that sometimes things can go wrong. We try to sort out most problems easily and quickly. In the first instance you should speak to the person concerned when the problem arises – they should try to resolve your concerns for you.
If, however you are not completely satisfied or they cannot resolve your problem, you may wish to make a formal complaint. You can make a formal complaint by contacting our Complaints Manager.
