Please be reassured that making a complaint will not adversely affect the treatment of the patient.
Wyndham Clinic welcomes the opportunity to improve standards by actively identifying areas of concern in current performance. By analysing complaints, Wyndham Clinic can actively improve the quality of care and service provided to customers.
The Clinic has a process in place for complaints and the Management will respond constructively to legitimate concerns of patients and their families.
A complaint can be lodged in writing, by telephone or in person. You can also make an anonymous complaint although we are not able to respond to your complaint in this instance.
Patients and their families who wish to make a complaint are advised to speak to the staff. The staff member will then record the complaint on an IIIR form. The information recorded will include:
- Nature of the complaint
- Date of concern
- Action taken in respect of the complaint
If the problem can be resolved at the staff level, we will endeavour to rectify it as quickly as possible.
If the complaint cannot be rectified then and there, the matter will be referred to the DON for investigation and the appropriate follow up action will be taken.
