We operate a practice complaints procedure that system adheres to national criteria. A copy of our complaints policy can be found below –
HOW TO COMPLAIN
We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If your problem cannot be sorted in this way and you wish to make a complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible – ideally, within a matter of days or at most a few weeks – because this will enable us to establish what happened most easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint: -within 6 months of the incident that caused the problem; or -within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem, provided this is within 12 months of the incident. Complaints about the treatment you received should be made to the Director. Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Director in order to discuss your concerns.
The complaints procedure can then be explained to you to ensure that your concerns are dealt with promptly. It will also help if you are as clear as possible about your complaint. In the rare event that your complaint is about a recent treatment, we will require to see you face to face to assess the area of complaint. On this appointment we will discuss the issues and take further photographs and assess the treatment. We will endeavour to address and rectify the issue if we feel there has been a substandard treatment carried out. Botulinum Toxin treatments and muscles with movement will require a Top Up at a cost of £25 per upper and £25 lower area.
Lower areas are meant to have plenty of movement, and are treated for prevention. Treatments are to be carried out by a student, therefore you will need to be patient and accept that treatments may carry a certain risk other than treatments carried out by an experienced and certified practitioner.
Students will be in a room, which is supervised by a tutor who has more than 2 years injecting anti ageing treatments.
