Feedback Or Complaints
We want your feedback
Regardless of whether you have had a positive experience or want to complain about something, your honest feedback helps us to continually improve the services we offer.
It is the aim of this practice to Have a Clear and Effective Complaints Procedure by meeting the GDC ‘Standards for the Dental Team’, and delivering good practice in complaint handling.
Carol Govier is the complaints manager and will be your personal contact to assist you with any complaints.
The team is trained to resolve all complaints promptly, efficiently and politely by following our Patient Complaints Procedure (G 110C) and Complaint Management procedures (G 110). The team responds to complaints in the time limits set by the Complaints Procedure and always provides constructive responses to complaints. The practice never discriminates against a patient who has made a complaint.
Team members do not react defensively to a complaint but listen carefully to a patient who makes one and involves them fully in the process of managing it. The team member will make best endeavours to meet any outcomes the patient expects.
If a patient is not satisfied despite our best efforts to resolve the complaint they will be informed about other avenues that are open to them such as the GDC Dental Complaints Service and the NHS Ombudsman.
The team are regularly trained in complaint handling and are involved in the regular review of complaints, complaints procedures and management through iCOMPLY so that services, policies and procedures can be continually improved.
