Comments And Suggestions
We are happy to accept and consider comments and suggestions from our patients. Please present your views in writing to our Practice Manager.
We always try to provide the best services possible, but there may be times when you feel this has not happened. The following explains our in-house complaints procedure, drawn up to respond to patient grievances. Our practice procedure is not able to deal with questions of legal liability or compensation. We hope you will use it to allow us to look into and, if necessary, correct any problems that you have identified, or mistakes that have been made. Please note that we have to respect our duty of confidentiality to patients and a patient’s consent will be necessary if a complaint is not made by the patient in person.
Complaints should be addressed to the Practice Manager, Pinehill Surgery, Pinehill Road, Bordon, Hampshire GU35 OBS or emailed to SEHCCG.PinehillSurgery@nhs.net Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Practice Manager to discuss your concerns.
The Complaint Procedure is available by clicking the link below or from Reception. Full details will be taken and a decision made on how best to undertake the investigation.
