Patient Complaints Policy

 

It is our aim to always have satisfied patients, to meet your expectations of care and service and to resolve any complaint as efficiently, effectively, and politely as possible. We take complaints very seriously; we investigate them promptly and fairly and take great care to protect your confidentiality.

We will never discriminate against patients who have made a complaint and we will be happy to listen and answer any questions you may have for us about your care and treatment. If you are not satisfied with any aspect of your care or our service, please let us know so we can address your concerns promptly and find a solution as soon as possible. You can email our Complaints Manager, Timothy Liggins or write to us instead. If you would rather speak in person or on the phone, an appointment can be booked with Daniel Marshall too. Your written complaint will be acknowledged in writing within 3 working days and we will aim to provide a full response in writing as soon as investigation is complete. We may need to speak to our clinicians if this involves them too.

If the Complaints Manager is unavailable, we will take details about the complaint and will pass it on as soon as they become available. If the complaint is regarding Complaints Manager, you may direct your complaint to Steven Liggins. We will keep comprehensive and confidential records of your complaint, which will be stored securely and only be accessible to those who need to know about it.

You can send your complaint to Project Alpha Ltd 301 – 305 High Street, Croydon, CR0 1QL or call us on 0207 112 9021 or email us on tim@project-alpha.co.uk

If the complaint investigation takes longer than anticipated our Complaints Manager will contact you at least every 10 working days to keep you informed of the reason for the delay, the progress of the investigation and the proposed date it will be completed. When the investigation has been completed, you will be informed of the outcome in writing. If you would like, we will invite you to a meeting to discuss the results and any practical solutions that we can offer to you.

We analyse patient complaints and as a team we learn from them so we make the changes to improve our services. That is why we always welcome your feedback, comments, suggestions, even complaints.

If you are dissatisfied with our response to your complaint, you can take it further and contact other organisations as per below.
