We aim to provide you with excellent quality services. We can only be sure we are succeeding if you let us know. Whether you are expressing your concerns, complimenting us or giving us suggestions, we will always be pleased to hear from you.
We would like you to:
- complain if you feel you received a poor service from us
- pass on a compliment when we get things right
- give us your suggestions for improving our services
If you are pleased with our service or if you think our Social Care Workers have gone that little bit further, please let the office know as we will want to pass the compliments onto the Social Care Workers as we value the work that they do.
For ease, should you wish to make a complaint, compliment us or give us suggestions, feel free to use our feedback form (at the top of this page).
All feedback will be taken seriously and acted upon with fairness and impartiality. Complaints can be made verbally or in writing. Complaints can be made by 3rd parties acting on behalf of the Service User. Service Users will not be discriminated against for making a complaint, nor will there be any negative affect on care. The Registered Manager will be happy to provide information on local advocacy groups and other support networks.
