There are obviously times when you feel we don’t get everything right and you may wish to lodge a more formal complaint. This may concern any aspect of medical care or administrative service. All formal complaints are handled initially by our Practice Manager , Mrs Natalie Dugmore and we follow the national guidelines for managing complaints. We aim to resolve these as quickly as we can.

Please be prepared to give details if possible. Portway Family Practice keeps confidential records of all complaints made.
