We want to hear from you.

If you have a concern, chances are that you are not alone. Your feedback could make us aware of problems that we don?t know about. So, we want to hear from you.

Let's talk.

Please discuss any concerns or questions you have with The Proprietor, Person In Charge or any Staff Nurse. In health care, it is especially important that people understand what is happening and feel comfortable about it. You are welcome to speak to other staff if you have any issues you wish to raise. Alternatively, use the feedback form overleaf.

What to expect.

If you have a complaint, we will respond to it promptly and sensitively. Feedback information is treated as confidential and managed according to privacy obligations. You can play an important role in resolving the problem by providing as much relevant information as possible, such as documents and the names of staff you have dealt with.

The Director of Nursing deals with all complaints and ensures that all serious complaints are brought to the attention of the Proprietor.We investigate complaints thoroughly to know what happened and why, and ways to prevent it happening again.We will keep you informed at all times so you know what is happening.

What we will do.

We will work with you to assess the most appropriate way to resolve the problem and the best outcome. We ask you to consider the outcome you would like and we will strive to provide it. We will provide you with all the facts about what happened and any strategies we have devised to improve our service as a result.

Improving our service.

Compliments and complaints are discussed at staff meetings and monthly meetings of our staff. We work together to find ways to improve and keep staff informed of what has happened.
