Our Formal Complaints Procedure

We hope that most issues can be resolved easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the staff member concerned.

If your problem cannot be resolved in this way, you may wish to make a formal complaint.  In this instance, contact the Patient Experience Team with the details of your formal complaint.

Please let us know of your formal complaint within 12 months of you becoming aware that you have cause for concern.

  • We operate a complaints procedure in line with the NHS Complaints Regulations (2009):We will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and, with your agreement, we aim to investigate and respond fully to your complaint within 25 working days. If this is not possible, we will keep you   informed and agree with you new timescales for responding.
  • We will offer, where appropriate, a meeting with you to discuss any outstanding issues.
  • We will identify and implement any improvements to our service to help  prevent a reoccurrence.

Accessing Your Health Records

We hold our own healthcare records and telephone call recordings for each episode of care we provide. As part of the investigation into your complaint, we may have to access again our records of your healthcare. This is done in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Complaining On Behalf of Someone Else

You can complain on behalf of a child for whom you have parental responsibility.
You can complain to us on behalf of someone else who used our services.
However, before we can discuss any aspect of their care with you, or start to investigate the incident, we will first need to get written consent from the person themselves.

Obtaining Consent

We will contact the person who received the care from our service and request that they sign a consent form for you to complain on their behalf and for us to investigate the incident.

If the person is unable to give their consent because they do not have the mental capacity to make an informed decision at the time, consent will be requested from their lasting power of attorney instead, that is the person appointed by them to act in their best interests and make decisions on their behalf.

If you are complaining on behalf of a child for whom you do not have parental responsibility, consent will be requested from whoever holds parental responsibility for the child.

Patient confidentiality is respected at all times. We will not disclose to anyone any patient care information relating to a complaint without the appropriate consent.

Further Independent Review

If you are not satisfied with our final response to your complaint, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Health Service Ombudsman.

The Health Service Ombudsman represents the last stage in the NHS complaints process and carries out free independent reviews into unresolved complaints throughout the NHS and NHS funded services in England.

The Health Service Ombudsman would normally expect complaints to be referred within 12 months of the incident leading to the complaint. Complaints received outside this time limit may be considered if there is good reason to do so.

If you have any questions about whether the Health Service Ombudsman may be able to help you, or about how to refer your complaint, please contact them at the details below:
