Before approaching the provider or HCSCC, think through your concerns and make sure you have everything clear in your mind. It may help to write a list (use the Online Complaint Form as a guide).
Successful resolution of your complaint is more likely if you are realistic about what outcome you want. You should also try to remain calm when approaching the provider in the first instance. You may wish to take a relative or close friend to support you.
Ask the provider for a date when you can expect a response and make sure they have your current contact details. When you receive a response, give yourself time to think about the whole situation carefully before deciding whether you are happy with the result.
If the provider does not respond, or you are not sure if the response is satisfactory, you may make a complaint with the HCSCC.
