 Wolverton Health Centre Complaints Procedure

We always try to give our patients the best possible service, but there may be times when you may feel this has not happened. We offer an informal in-house complaints procedure to deal with your complaint, although this does not deal with matters of legal liability and compensation.

If you have a complaint about the way you have been treated clinically by either a doctor or nurse, or an administrative problem, please speak directly to the practice manager or deputy, either in person or by telephone.

They will take the details of your complaint and undertake all necessary investigations. Alternatively, you can complete a complaint form which can be requested for at Reception or you can write to the practice manager at:

Wolverton Health Centre
Gloucester Road
Wolverton
Milton Keynes
MK12 5DF

We take all complaints seriously and think it is important to deal with them as swiftly as possible. However, for complex investigations more time may be required.

Once our investigations are complete we will respond to you in writing, usually within 25 working days or earlier if agreed. If you prefer, we can arrange for an informal meeting to take place to discuss the outcome of our investigation and if this is your preferred option then you are welcome to bring a relative or friend with you.

You can either complain to the NHS service provider directly ( such as a GP, dentist surgery or hospital) or to the commissioner of the services, which is the body that pays for the NHS services you use. You cannot apply to both.

We try to address your concerns fully, provide you with an explanation and advise you of any actions we will be taking.

If you are ultimately unhappy with this response:

Please refer your complaint to:

Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman,
Citygate,
51 Mosley St,
Manchester
