How to complain
We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If your problem cannot be sorted out in this way and you wish to make a complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible, ideally within a matter of days or at most a few weeks, because this will enable us to establish what happened more easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint: within 6 months of the incident that caused the problem; or within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem, provided this is within 12 months of the incident.
Initially speak to any member of staff who will be happy to listen to your concerns. If possible, we will endeavour to rectify any complaint or misunderstanding immediately. You may also ask to speak to the Practice Manager, Mrs D Enderby or Assistant Manager, Mr B Enderby. If you feel your problem has not been resolved, please put your complaint in writing and address it to;
Mrs D Enderby or Mr B Enderby
Enderbys of Boston Ltd
84 Wide Bargate
Lincolnshire, PE21 6SE
or alternatively you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You may ask for an appointment with either or both of them in order to discuss your concerns. They will explain the complaints procedure to you and will ensure that your concerns are dealt with promptly. It will be a great help if you are as specific as possible about your complaint.
What we shall do
We shall acknowledge your complaint within two working days and aim to have looked into your
complaint within ten working days of the date when you raised it with us. We shall then be in a position to offer you an explanation, or a meeting with the people involved.
When we look into your complaint, we shall aim to: find out what happened and what went wrong; make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this; make sure you receive an apology, where this is appropriate; identify what we can do to make sure the problem doesn’t happen again.
Complaining on behalf of someone else
Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of clinical confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have their permission to do so. A note signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless they are incapable (because of physical or mental illness) of providing this.
Complaining to the Health Authority
We hope that if you have a problem, you will use our practice complaints procedure. We believe this will give us the best chance of putting right whatever has gone wrong and an opportunity to improve our practice. This does not affect your right to approach your local Clinical Commissioning Group, if you feel you cannot raise your complaint with us or you are dissatisfied with the result of our investigation.
