Complaints Procedure

At No.6 & No.6 Clinic we pride ourselves in delivering the highest standard of medical and professional care to all of our patients and clients using the highest grade of products available.

We treat all of our clients with care, compassion and respect, however there may be times when the service that you have received does not meet the high standards that we aim to deliver.

Should this happen, the most effective way to resolve any concern is by letting the Practitioner know immediately after the service or treatment that you have received. They will listen to your concern and aim to resolve your complaint efficiently and effectively on the spot. If you require assistance with making your complaint we will be pleased to help and support you through the process.

If you haven’t been able to complain at the time of treatment then it is best to make your complaint as soon as possible, as memories will be fresher and it will be easier to investigate the facts. You should normally make your complaint within three months of the incident you are concerned about. No.6 Clinic may be willing to investigate complaints after this time where there is a realistic opportunity of conducting a fair and effective investigation and if you have a good reason as to why you could not raise the complaint sooner.

We will always aim to resolve your complaint as soon as we receive it however where this is not possible the complaint will be investigated by the Clinic Manager and you will receive an acknowledgment of your complaint within 3 working days. This may be by email, letter or telephone.

The Clinic Manager will provide you with a written response within 20 working days from the acknowledgment of your complaint however If the complaint is of a complicated nature it may take longer to investigate in which case you will be kept informed.

Complaints of a non-medical nature will be investigated by the Clinic Manager.

If your complaint is regarding a treatment that you have received the matter will be investigated by the Clinic’s Medical Team including the Medical Director. You may be asked to attend the clinic for an assessment with a nurse or a Doctor. Once this has taken place you will receive an outcome of your complaint within 20 working days by letter or email.
