At One Clinic Leigh, we take patient complaints seriously and aim to address them courteously and promptly to achieve a swift resolution. Our commitment to handling complaints is guided by the following principles:

  1. Responsibility: Beena Khan, our director, is responsible for handling all service-related complaints.
  2. Communication: If a patient lodges a complaint in person or over the phone, we’ll immediately forward it to Beena Khan. If she’s unavailable, we’ll arrange a suitable time for a discussion.
  3. Written or Email Complaints: For complaints received in writing or via email, we will promptly acknowledge the complaint and initiate our resolution process, which involves an initial response, investigation, and reaching a resolution.
  4. Clinical Concerns: Complaints about clinical care or associated charges will typically be directed to the relevant dentist, unless the patient prefers otherwise.
  5. Acknowledgment: Within three working days, we will send a written acknowledgment of the complaint, along with a copy of our code of practice.
  6. Investigation: We aim to investigate and provide an explanation for the complaint within ten working days of receiving it. If an in-person meeting is not preferred, we will attempt to communicate via telephone. Should a delay occur, we will inform the patient, specifying the reasons and a likely resolution timeline.
  7. Decision Confirmation:After completing our investigation, we will promptly confirm our decision in writing.
  8. Records and Improvement: We maintain comprehensive records of all complaints and actions taken to enhance our services based on the complaints received.
  9. External Options: If patients remain unsatisfied with our procedure, they have the option to escalate their complaint to:

-The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman at Millbank Tower, Millbank, London, SW1P 4QP. Telephone: 03450 154 033, [Website](
