  • within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem, provided this is within 12 months of the incident.

Complaints about the treatment you received should be made to our Complaints Officer,Mr. D.A.Clarke .You can either write to the practice addressing it to Mr. Clarke or make an appointment with him to discuss your concerns. He will explain the complaints procedure to you and will ensure that your concerns are dealt with promptly. It will help if you are as clear as possible about your complaint.
