Important Information

Your Named Doctor

All patients are automatically registered with Mytton Oak Medical Practice. As part of a government initiative patients have also now been allocated to a named accountable GP. It is important to note that patients are still free to see whichever GP they choose, however any incoming post or results will normally be reviewed by your named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care. If you would like to know who your allocated named GP is then please speak to any member of staff when you next attend the practice or alternatively ask at reception.

Online Access to Records

It is  possible for Patients to book, amend and cancel appointments and to order repeat prescriptions online. It is also possible for patients to view their medical records, including test results online. Please contact the surgery for details.

 Flu

Many people are entitled to an annual flu vaccination free from the NHS. These include people with long term health condition, carers, pregnant women, young children and anyone over 65. To check your eligibility or to book an appointment for your vaccination, please contact Reception.

We will be holding flu clinics on:

Saturday 7th October

Saturday 21st October

Saturday 4th November

Please telephone Reception to make an appointment. If none of these dates are convenient, we will accommodate you during the week.

Complaints Form

PATIENT COMPLAINT FORM

 

If you have a complaint or concern about the service you have received from the doctors or any of the personnel working in this practice, please let us know. We operate a practice complaint procedure as part of an NHS complaints system, which meets or exceeds national criteria.

 

HOW TO COMPLAIN

 

We hope that we can sort most problems out easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If you wish to make a formal complaint, please do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - ideally within a matter of a few days. This will enable us to establish what happened more easily. If doing that is not possible your complaint should be submitted within 12 months of the incident that caused the problem; or within 12 months of discovering that you have a problem. You should address your complaint in writing to the Practice Manager (you can use the attached form). He/she will make sure that we deal with your concerns promptly and in the correct way. You should be as specific and concise as possible.

 

COMPLAINING ON BEHALF OF SOMEONE ELSE

 

We keep strictly to the rules of medical confidentiality (a separate leaflet giving more detail on confidentiality is available on request). If you are not the patient, but are complaining on their behalf, you must have their permission to do so. An authority signed by the person concerned will be needed, unless they are incapable (because of illness or infirmity) of providing this. A Third Party Consent Form is provided below.

 

WHAT WE WILL DO

 

We will acknowledge your complaint within 3 working days and aim to have fully investigated within 10 working days of the date it was received. If we expect it to take longer we will explain the reason for the delay and tell you when we expect to finish. When we look into your complaint, we will investigate the circumstances; make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned; make sure you receive an apology if this is appropriate, and take steps to make sure any problem does not arise again.

 

You will receive a final letter setting out the result of any practice investigations

 

TAKING IT FURTHER

 

If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome you may refer the matter to NHS England, who commission local health services, or if you are still not satisfied by their response, the next step would be to contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO) to review how the complaint has been handled.

 

 

Complaints to NHS England

 

If a complainant has concerns relating to a directly commissioned service by NHS England, then the first step is, where appropriate, for complaints and concerns to be resolved on the spot with their local service provider. This is called by NHS England ‘informal complaint resolution’ and is in line with the recommendations of the Complaints Regulations of 2009.

 

If it is not appropriate to raise a concern informally or where informal resolution fails to achieve a satisfactory outcome, the complainant has the right to raise a formal complaint with either the service provider or the commissioner of the service NHS England.

 

A complaint or concern can be received by mail, electronically or by telephone via these details;

 

By telephone:         03003 11 22 33

By email:                england.contactus@nhs.net

By post:                 NHS England, PO Box 16738, Redditch, B97 9PT

If you are not happy with the Ombudsman’s decision, then you can appeal directly to the PHSO, and details of this process can be found on their website;

 

www.ombudsman.org.uk

 

Once the Ombudsman or one of their senior staff has considered the complaint and sent a response, their decision is final. Unless you raise any new issues that they consider significant to the complaint, they will not send further replies (but will still acknowledge further correspondence).
