Complaints

The home has a written complaints policy and procedure, which is to be followed in case of a complaint. If a Service User, relative or visitor, you feel that there is a cause for complaint, you should first discuss the matter with the person in charge. If the matter is in your opinion, a serious one, or if you remain dissatisfied, you can record the complaint in the Complaints Register, book or from the person in charge. A full investigation will be made into the complaint, and you will be advised of the outcome within 28 days after the date the complaint is made.
