If you would like to provide feedback or to make a complaint about the service you have received from the dentists or any of the staff working in this practice, please let us know. We operate a practice complaints procedure which adheres to national criteria.
At Broughton Dental Practice we take complaints very seriously and we try to ensure that all our patients are pleased with their experience whilst in our care. When patients complain, they are dealt with courteously and promptly so that the matter is resolved as quickly as possible. Our aim is to react to complaints in the way in which we would want our complaint about a service to be handled. We learn from every mistake that we make and we respond to patients concerns in a caring and sensitive way.
Please see our Complaints Policy below:
Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have the permission to do so. A note signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless they are incapable of providing this because of physical or mental illness or are a child under 16 years.
We hope that, if you have a problem, you will make use of our practice complaints procedure. We believe this will provide the best chance of putting right whatever has gone wrong and an opportunity to improve our practice. However this does not affect your right to complain to the Dental Complaints Service, if you feel you cannot raise your complaint with us or you are dissatisfied with the result of our investigation.
