Our customer service function will be maintained during the NHS response to the Covid-19 pandemic; however there will be adjustments to the level of service that is provided and there may be a delay in responding. We have adjusted our operation to ensure that we can provide the best possible service under the circumstances. We advise patients to please contact us via the online portal, by email or by telephone, to ensure that we receive your enquiry promptly. We may be unable to pick up calls as they come in, however if you leave a brief message with your name and number, we will endeavour to contact you within 3 working days. Letters sent to our South Plaza address may not be responded to as quickly.
We are committed to ensuring that services in the local area meet and exceed the expectations of our population. Your feedback is therefore very important and we strongly encourage you to share your experience with us so we can use it to help maintain, improve or if necessary, change the services we commission.
If you have a compliment, concern, complaint or would simply like some free and confidential advice in relation to a healthcare service you have received, please contact the Customer Services Team who will be happy to help you.
The team can be contacted by completing our online contact form, or by using the following contact details:

Every quarter, we analyse data on the experiences of our patients. We produce a report for our Quality Committee, Governing Body and Patient Participation Involvement Forum (PPIF) identifying any themes, trends and actions taken. No individual patients are identified in this report and it does not contain data on any individuals. A link to the most recent report is below.
