How to complain for someone else

If you want to complain on behalf of someone else, we need to know that you have the patient’s permission to do so. We’ll need a note in writing from them unless they’re unable to provide one due to illness or disability. 

We’ll send this consent form to the patient when we receive the complaint.

The patient will have 20 working days from when they receive the consent form to give their consent.
