If you are unhappy with any services we provide, it is worthwhile discussing your concerns early on with a member of the management team, as we may be able to resolve the issues or concerns. Most problems can be dealt with at this stage but, in some cases, you may feel more comfortable speaking to someone not directly involved in your care.
