How to make a complaint

We endeavour to give patients the best possible service at all times however, there may be occasions when you feel you wish to express dissatisfaction. The purpose of this leaflet is to explain what to do if you have a complaint about the service the practice provides.

You can register a complaint directly with Birley Health Centre. We offer an in-house procedure to deal promptly with your concerns, in familiar surroundings.

This procedure does not handle matters of legal liability or compensation. It’s purpose is to provide the opportunity for investigating and if necessary correcting any problems that may have arisen or mistakes that have been made. This is called local resolution and it is hoped most complaints can be resolved in this way.

Please note we have a duty of confidentiality to all patients and written consent is required if a complaint is not made directly by a patient.

If you wish to make a complaint to Birley Health Centre please contact:

  • Mr S Fellowes, Practice Manager, Birley Health Centre by telephone 0114 2358038, in person, by email or letter.

The practice will acknowledge the complaint within 3 working days of receipt and decide how best to undertake the investigation. We aim to resolve the issues raised within 20 working days.

If you are not satisfied with the initial result of the complaint, you may be invited to attend a meeting which would be held at the practice, you may bring a friend, relative or someone you trust to rerpesent you. The aim is to resolve any concerns or disagreements fully.

Alternatively a complaint can be made directly to local integrated care board (ICB). Please note the same complaint should not be made to both organisations.
