Complaints Procedure

Eastleigh Southern Parishes Network Ltd. endeavours to provide the best consideration of patient needs at all times. To help us make sure we provide the best possible care and attention, we offer patients the opportunity to tell us, informally, of any suggestions they have for the further improvement of their healthcare. Patients can contact Eastleigh Southern Parishes Network Ltd. via the contact page. We will aim to reply within three working days.

If you wish to make a formal complaint about any aspect of our service, please email Eastleigh Southern Parishes Network Ltd. via the contact page or write to ESPN Ltd., Blackthorn Health Centre, Satchell Lane, Hamble, Southampton, SO31 4NQ. We will acknowledge your letter within three working days of receipt and initiate a full internal investigation on your behalf. A written explanation will be sent to you within ten working days but, should the investigation take longer, you will be kept informed. On receipt of the written explanation, you will be offered the opportunity to meet in order to discuss the outcome further.

Alternatively, you can choose to raise your complaint about Primary Care services directly with NHS England or the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS), if your complaint concerns care received at Hampshire Hospitals. If you need help in making your complaint you can also approach the Independent Complaints Advisory Service (ICAS).

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint at local level, you can ask The Health Service Ombudsman to independently review your case. Contact details can be found below
