How to make a complaint
If you would like to make a complaint about any aspect of the service or care you have received, there are a number of ways to do so:
- Client questionnaire
- Call us
- Write to us
- Contact your local CCG or NHS England
This will be given to you before leaving our centre or clinic.
Please call us and let us know that you wish to make a complaint.
- England, Scotland and Wales: 0345 300 8090
- Northern Ireland: 0333 234 2184
- Ireland: 1 800 200 374
- International: +44 345 300 2352
Your call will be transferred to the treatment centre within working hours to speak with the Manager or a Supervisor. A record will be made of your complaint and the Manager or Supervisor will investigate with the team members concerned.
Depending on the nature of the complaint you may be asked to put this in writing, for ease of investigation. If your complaint cannot be resolved at the time of the initial telephone call you will be contacted either by telephone, or in writing, once the investigation has been completed.

Your complaint will be handled by the Head of Customer and Quality Services, who will begin an investigation with the relevant centre or clinic Manager. A written response will be sent to you. We aim to respond within 20 working days.
