Want to make a complaint?

We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice.

However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.

Andover Medical Centre Complaints Procedure

We at Andover Medical Centre are committed to providing the best possible care. However, if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our service, we encourage you to let us know so we can address your concerns promptly.

How to Make a Complaint

  1. Initial Step: Speak Directly
    • If possible, speak directly with the staff member involved in your care. Often, issues can be resolved quickly and informally at this stage.
  2. Written Complaint
    • If your concern is not resolved informally, you can make a formal complaint. This can be done by writing to the Practice Manager. You can submit your complaint via email, post, or by filling out a complaints form available at the reception.
