Tongue Tie Solutions
Jennifer Johnson strives to provide the best possible service for our clients. However, sometimes you may feel that we have not met your needs. If you have any complaint or concern about the service you are entitled to ask for an explanation.
Jennifer Johnson will always take complaints about any aspects of my services very seriously, in order to ensure that every patient has the very best experience at all times.
Complaints are dealt with in the first instance by Jennifer Jonson in conjunction with advice from her indemnifier (Hiscox) and professional body (Royal College of Nursing). This procedure does not deal with matters of legal liability, compensation or regulation.
Jennifer Johnson will:
- Listen to your complaint or concern.
- Respond by establishing a clear, appropriate plan of action, and provide you with relevant support and advice.
- Aim to improve the service
How to make your complaint
Any concerns can be raised initially directly during consultations or by email. If your problem is not resolved in this way and you wish to make a complaint, please do so as soon as possible.
Please make your complaint in writing to Jennifer Johnson by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be assured that any complaint you make, written or verbal, will be treated in strict confidence and have no effect upon the level of treatment and care that you receive.
If you would prefer a family member, friend or advocate to make the complaint on your behalf, they may do so. However, we cannot provide any medical information to a third party without your written consent.
What happens next?
Your complaint will be acknowledged within two working days of receiving it.
Jennifer Johnson will aim to make a full response to you within the next 21 working days. During that time an investigation will seek to find out what has happened and whether there is any action that can be taken to put things right. If at the end of those 21 working days the investigation is still ongoing, you will be notified of the position and kept fully informed until the investigation has been concluded.
Jennifer Johnson will:
- Examine what has happened and what went wrong
- Make it possible for you to discuss the problem face to face, if you would like this
- Keep you informed of progress
- Identify what we can do to make sure that problem does not happen again
- Make sure you receive an apology (please not that an apology is note an admission of guilt)
Getting further help with your complaint
A mediation service is available through the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR). Please let us know if you wish to access this service.
If you are unhappy with the outcome of your complaint you can seek further advice from the Nursing and Midwifery Council https://www.nmc.org.uk/concerns-nurses-midwives/concerns-complaints-and-referrals/
The CQC want you to tell them about your experiences of care. It helps them to decide when, where and what to inspect, and to take action to prevent poor care happening to others in future.
"CQC also want to hear about good experiences of care. However, it is important to know that CQC cannot make complaints for you or take them up on your behalf because as a regulator the CQC does not have powers to investigate or resolve them."
You can contact the CQC by email email@example.com.
