This has led us to be an award-winning clinical group and favoured by our patients. This is from a combination of our team’s world-class expertise and as a result of responding to feedback that we have received over the years. We understand sometimes situations may happen where you are unhappy with our services and your clinic experience matters to us.
If you do experience any issues or are unhappy about anything at our clinic, including correspondence before and after your visit, please let us know at the time by verbally informing a member of staff. If the event is after you have left the clinic, the please telephone or email your concern.
We offer Feedback Cards that you can help yourself to in the consultation rooms, the communal waiting areas and front reception desk that include means to contact us for feedback and complaints. The team can also provide on request a patient survey from the General Medical Council that you can fill out anonymously regarding any consultant you have seen at our clinic to help them help you better.
We also email you after your appointment to ask for feedback and respond accordingly.
If you would like to email us you feedback on your experience, positive or not, kindly send that over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
