If you are unhappy about any aspect of the service you are invited to discuss your complaint with your doctor, nurse, therapist or psychologist.
If you are not satisfied with the response, or if the complaint is against your doctor, nurse, therapist or psychologist, you can ask the reception staff to speak to the Director of the Centre, or you can contact him directly by phone or letter. His contact details are as follows:
Geoffrey Baruch PhD
The Brandon Centre
26 Prince of Wales Road
London NW5 3LG
Telephone: 020 7267 4792
Anybody who makes a formal complaint will receive a written acknowledgement within 2 working days of their complaint being received, unless they state for reasons of confidentiality that they do not wish to be written to, or unless a full reply can be sent within 5 working days.
The Director will make a full response within 20 working days of receiving the complaint. If there is a delay beyond this time because the investigation is still in progress, a letter will be sent explaining the delay. A full response will always be sent within 5 days of the conclusion being reached.
If someone has made a complaint, they will be kept informed in writing of the stages of the investigation and any action which results. If for reasons of confidentiality they have stated that they do not wish to be written to, they will be asked for an alternative means of contact.
The Director will inform the Brandon Centre’s Council of Management of all complaints received and any action taken.
