Complaints handling policy & procedure Longwood house dental Care

In this practice, we take complaints very seriously and try to ensure that all our patients are pleased with their experience of our service. When patients complain, they are dealt with courteously and promptly so that the matter is resolved as quickly as possible. This procedure is based on these objectives.

The complaint must be made by the patient themselves if 18yrs or over, alternatively they can be represented with written consent.

  1. The person responsible for dealing with any complaint about the service which we provide is our Practice Manager, humera younnis and Dr. Tasleem Ahmed.
  2. If the patient complains by telephone, we will request the complaint be in writing by letter or email, it will be passed on immediately to the Practice Manager or Dr. Ahmed.
  3. If a complaint is about any aspect of clinical care or associated charges it will normally be referred to the dentist if the practice manager can not resolve the matter, unless the patient does not want this to happen.
  4. We will acknowledge the patient’s complaint in writing and enclose a copy of this code of practice & procedure as soon as possible, normally within one week.
  5. We will seek to investigate the complaint within 10 working days of receipt to give an explanation of the circumstances which led to the complaint. If we are unable to investigate the complaint within 10 working days we will notify the patient, giving reasons for the delay and a likely period within which the investigation will be completed.
