Complaints

Talk to us

Every patient has the right to make a complaint about the treatment or care they have received at Reach Healthcare.

We understand that we may not always get everything right and, by telling us about the problem you have encountered, we will be able to improve our services and patient experience.

Who to talk to

Most complaints can be resolved at a local level. Please speak to a member of staff if you have a concern and we will assist you where possible.

Alternatively, please ask to speak to our reception managers for direct advice.

If you do not want to speak to a member of our staff for any reason, you can request that the Integrated Care Board (ICB) investigate your complaint.

They will contact us on your behalf:

NHS Frimley ICB
Aldershot Centre for Health

A complaint can be made verbally or in writing.  A complaints form is available from reception. Additionally, you can email us on [email protected]

Time frames for complaints

The time constraint on bringing a complaint is 12 months from the occurrence giving rise to the complaint, or 12 months from the time you become aware of the matter about which you wish to complain.

The complaint lead will acknowledge your complaint in two working days.

We will aim to investigate and provide you with the findings as soon as we are able.

Investigating complaints

We will investigate all complaints effectively and in conjunction with extant legislation and guidance.

Confidentiality

We will ensure that all complaints are investigated with the utmost confidentiality and that any documents are held separately from the patient’s healthcare record.

Third-party complaints

We allow third parties to make a complaint on behalf of a patient. The patient must provide consent for them to do so.  A third-party patient complaint form is available from reception.
