Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group aims to commission high quality services.
Sometimes things go wrong and when they do we want you to tell us about it. We recognise the value that complaints can provide in planning for the future and in improving services for the benefit of the local community.
We are also very pleased to receive feedback and compliments about our work or the quality of health services you have received as a local resident.
Please note, NHS staff have the right to be treated with respect at all times, and will not tolerate rudeness of any kind. This includes aggressive behaviour or comments and swearing. If this is carried out over the phone we support any member of staff’s decision to terminate the call. All instances of physical abuse to any member of staff will be reported to the police as an assault.
To tell us about your experience please contact us in one of the following ways:
Watch this video (produced by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman) which uses British Sign Language to give you tips on making a complaint to the NHS in England, including where to get advice and support.

When you make a complaint you need to provide your postal address, email address (if you have one and wish to use it) and contact telephone number along with as much detail as possible about the complaint. This will help us handle your complaint as quickly as possible. We will ring you to discuss how you would like your complaint handled and what outcome you are seeking.
When we investigate your complaint we may need to share your personal information with other organisations. We will only share information that is relevant to the investigation and it will only be disclosed to those people who have a clear need to know for the purposes of investigating your concern. It will help us to handle your complaint as quickly as possible if you give us your consent to share your information if required when you make your complaint.
If you have a complaint about your GP practice, please contact your practice manager in the first instance by visiting your practice's website.
