complaints procedure

How do I make a complaint against the Myhealth Team?

The Myhealth programme Complaints Procedure is designed to address any specific concerns our patients have that relate to the quality of customer service provided by Myhealth or our providers.

For example this might include:

  • maladministration
  • delays in receiving information/responses within accepted timeframes (excluding Freedom of Information and Data Protection requests)
  • difficulty in contacting the correct office, branch or person
  • incorrect information or guidance issued by Myhealth
  • attitude and conduct of Myhealth or the Myhealth providers staff

The procedures set out below explains how you can make a complaint about the quality of our services.

Informal Procedure

Our aim is to resolve any complaint quickly and you are invited initially to bring any matter of concern to the attention of the Myhealth Departmental official with whom you have been dealing. However, if you still feel dissatisfied after this approach, you may initiate a formal complaint in writing.

Formal Procedures

All formal complaints should be in writing.  Please provide as much information as possible along with contact details, such as your name, telephone number and postal address.  We will handle any personal data you provide in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
