Comments & Complaints

We welcome all comments and suggestions about our service. We always try to give you the best service possible, but there may be times when you feel this has not happened. This section explains what to do if you have a complaint, which we would be happy to discuss further with you. Our practice procedure is not able to deal with questions of legal liability or compensation.

It may not be possible to see the Practice Manager without an appointment. If you do wish to make a complaint please write to the Complaints department we will acknowlege this in writing with in three working days where possible, we will endeavor to provide you with full details of the investigation and conclusion within 10 days after receiving your complaint but it may take a bit longer if more information is needed.   

This procedure allows  the practice to investigate and, if appropriate, put right any problems you have identified or mistakes that have been made. This procedure does not affect your right to complain to Healthwatch Portsmouth. You can also contact SEAP (Support Empower Advocate Promote) for information and/or advice. Contact details for both are shown below.

Please note that we have to respect our duty of confidentiality to patients and a patient’s consent will be necessary if a complaint is not made by that patient in person.

We may  organise a meeting to discuss our investigation and you may bring a friend or relative to the meeting. We will try to address your concerns fully, provide you with an explanation, and discuss any appropriate action to ensure your satisfaction. We will also provide a written response of the above. Should you wish to continue your complaint, we will direct you to the appropriate authorities who will be able to help you.
