Old Street Dental Practice operates a complaints procedure as part of the NHS system which meets with the national criteria.
Our aim is to provide you with the highest possible level of service.
Should you wish to make a complaint, and then please speak with the reception staff that will be able to advise you as to what to do next. However, you can follow the information below in order to have your complaint dealt with promptly.
How to complain
We hope that most complaints can be dealt with simply as soon as they are brought to our attention. If this is not possible then the next step will be to put your compliant in writing addressed to – Dr Chopra. Alternatively, you can ask for an appointment with Dr Chopra to discuss your concerns. All complaints will be handled considerately and in the strictest confidence.
We will acknowledge your complaint within two working days and aim to respond to your complaint within ten working days.
We aim to;
- Investigate; find out what happened and what went wrong
- Make it possible for you to discuss the issue with those concerned
- Endeavour that you receive an apology where appropriate
- Identify what we can do to prevent the same problem recurring
