Complaints Procedure 

All treatment of care provided, is with your podiatrist as an individual autonomous practitioner, not with Central Clinic, and as such they are solely responsible for your podiatry treatment. 
All podiatrists providing podiatry care at Central Clinic aim to provide the highest quality of patient care to all the patients but occasionally you may have reason to complain. It is always our aim to resolve any complaints swiftly and amicably. Detailed below is the procedure we follow and information regarding our Professional Body and Regulatory Body should you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of your complaint and wish to take the complaint further. 
1. Should you have reason to complain about your treatment, please contact Central Clinic , in writing. If you are unsure of the name of the Podiatrist, state the date and time of your treatment please contact reception for details. 
2. You will receive an acknowledgement of your complaint within 10 working days. 
3. You will be invited to attend a meeting with the Podiatrist who treated you. Hopefully at this point the complaint will be resolved. It will be necessary for the complaint to be reported to the Clinic Director. This is a formality, so they can direct and investigate the complaint where appropriate.
