Express Your Dissatisfaction
The local Complaints Commissioner’s exclusive mandate is to protect and respect the rights of patients. It is his/her duty to inform you about the complaints system and your appeal.
Before addressing your complaint to the Commissioner, we invite you, as a first step, to discuss the situation with your supervising staff member. This approach will often lead to a solution and enable you to put your concerns to rest.
