What will happen next?

  1. We will send you a letter acknowledging receipt of your complaint within 14 days of us receiving the complaint, enclosing a copy of this procedure.
  2. We will then investigate your complaint. This will normally involve passing your complaint to Mr Imran Mahmood who will review your file and speak to the member of staff who acted for you.
  3. Mr Mahmood will then invite you to a meeting to discuss and hopefully resolve your complaint. This will be done within 21 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  4. Within 7 days of the meeting, Mr Mahmood will write to you to confirm what took place and any solutions he has agreed with you.
  5. If you do not want a meeting or it is not possible, Mr Mahmood will send you a detailed written reply to your complaint, including his suggestions for resolving the matter, within 14 days of sending you the acknowledgement letter.
  6. At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, you should contact us again and we will arrange for someone unconnected with the matter at the practice to review the decision.
  7. We will write to you within 14 days of receiving your request for a review, confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
  8. If we have to change any of the timescales above, we will let you know and explain why.
  9. If you are still not satisfied, you can then contact the Legal Ombudsman. Any complaint to the Legal Ombudsman must usually be made within six months of the date of the conclusion of the Firm’s complaints procedure i.e., final response and one year from the date of the act, or from when the complainant should have realised there was an issue. The Legal Ombudsman’s contact details are as follows:
