In more serious cases, you may be requested to put the complaint in writing however if you are unable or prefer not to do this yourself or if you feel that you need some help with this then please discuss this with the Practice Manager. As a patient, you have the right to be treated in a courteous and non- discriminatory manner. Your requests will be dealt with efficiently.
If you feel that you cannot approach the practice you can contact by post:
