BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINATION APPOINTMENT NOW

 The GP’s at The Haven seek to encourage every eligible patient to have their free flu jab this year. Perhaps you are delaying booking an appointment until more is known about the Covid-19 booster programme, or you are hesitant because there were very few cases of flu last year and you feel fit and well at the moment? You may be waiting for more information from the government or from other reputable sources?  In any case, our sincere advice to our patients ,is that you should pre-book your flu vaccination appointment as soon as possible. 

Our receptionists are waiting to hear from you

How to Make a Complaint

Please read our Complaints Procedure Leaflet here. 

Should you have any reason to make a complaint about an administrative or a clinical issue, you can ask to speak to the Practice Manager, Sue Doyle who is available to meet and discuss any concerns patients may have regarding the care they received.

You can contact her either on the phone or in person, or you can put your concern in writing via letter or email to BHCCG.TheHaven@nhs.net. Your complaint will be treated with complete confidentiality. 

If you feel uncomfortable about speaking directly with the Practice Manager, you can contact Healthwatch. This is a new consumer champion for both health and social care. It exists in two distinct forms – local Healthwatch, at local level, and Healthwatch England, at national level. They can support and advise you and with your consent will investigate your complaint.

They work with charities community and voluntary organisations that support people who use health and care services. They can help patients and local residents with difficulties they may be facing with health services. Their contact details locally are:
