Making a complaint about your GP

See how to make a complaint about a GP.

There may be times when you or the person wish to make a complaint about the person's GP. Someone making a complaint in England can access support from the Independent NHS Complaints Advocacy service in their area. Their surgery, the local Citizens Advice Bureau, or NHS Choices can provide contact details. If after following the complaints procedure you are still not happy with the outcome you can contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.

In Wales, the local Community Health Council can help with complaints, and NHS Direct Wales can provide you with contact information. If after following the complaints procedure you are still not happy with the outcome you can contact the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales.

In Northern Ireland, you can access support with a complaint through the Patient and Client Council. If after following the complaints procedure you are still not happy with the outcome you can contact the Northern Ireland Ombudsman (see 'Other useful organisations' for more details).
