Standard Of Service
Whilst we try our best to provide you with a friendly and efficient service, we do recognise that there may well be room for improvement and are open to constructive suggestions. Please make these by completing a comments and suggestions form which you can obtain from the reception staff. Suggestions for ways of improving the service will always be considered seriously.
Violent Or Abusive Patients
Practice staff will try to accommodate patient’s requests wherever possible. Sometimes it is not possible to comply with a request from a patient and an explanation of the reasons for this decision is given. We WILL NOT tolerate violent or verbally abusive behaviour towards medical, nursing or administrative staff and such patients may be removed from the practice list.
If for any reason you feel dissatisfied with the service provided, the practice manager is our complaints officer and you can address your complaint either verbally or in writing. We will endeavour to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. However if you feel that your complaint needs to be dealt with by an independent body you are welcome to address your concern to the Complaints Manager at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board on 01352 700227. Please ask them for a copy of the “Putting Things Right” leaflet.
