Complaints / Comments

We endeavour to provide all of our patients with a first class service when they visit or contact the surgery.  If all has gone well please tell us, it makes our world go round!

If there is anything you think we could have done better please let us know.

How do I make a complaint?

If you have any complaints or concerns about the service that you have received from the doctors or staff working for this practice, please let us know.

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 12 months of the incident occurring or
  • Within 12 months of the date of the incident coming to your attention

We will be pleased to deal with any complaint.  Our complaints procedure will be explained to you and make sure that your concerns are dealt with promptly.   You can make your complaint:

  • In person –   ask to speak to the Operational Manager or Practice Support Manager if you are registered at either our Abbey View, Fontmell, Sturminster or Marnhull practices 01747 856700 or 01258 474500
  • In writing  –   some complaints may be easier to explain in writing – please give as much information as you can, then send your complaint to the practice for the attention of the relevant manager as soon as possible.
