Disputes with the NHS and Social Services
In order for us to take on a case you would normally have already pursued the NHS or Social Services Complaints Procedure. This will involve making your complaint, in writing, about the problem that you have been having, within the relevant timescales. Contact your Local Council or NHS body for details about how to make a complaint. In some circumstances, we may be able to assist with making a complaint, or at least give you some advice about how to do so.
