Complaints Procedure

We are committed to providing the highest quality of care for our residents and welcome your views, comments, suggestions and complaints.

Our Complaints Procedure has three stages:

Stage one: Local resolution

  • We encourage people to raise comments, concerns and complaints with any member of staff at the care home and with the local management in the first instance
  • We aim to acknowledge complaints as quickly as possible 
  • We aim to keep people up to date with any investigations and / or outcomes and will make every effort to provide a formal response within 20 days. If it is likely to take longer then we will let complainants know as soon as possible

Stage two: Internal review

  • If you are not satisfied with any aspect of the management or response you receive in stage one, you can contact the Director of Clinical Excellence who will review the complaint and the outcome
  • After this review, the Director of Clinical Excellence will provide a written response to the complainant 
  • You can contact the Director of Clinical Excellence by email: [email protected] or in writing to:

Stage 3: External Ombudsman 

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of how your complaint has been handled in stage 1 and stage 2 of our process then you can refer your complaint to a third party, usually through an Ombudsman service.
