Offer a solution or explanation if they are able to, if they cannot offer a solution or explanation they will pass your concerns to the relevant person.

  • Your complaint or concern will be formally acknowledged, and you will be informed who will be investigating the matter and their position in the organisation.
  • The investigating officer will fully investigate your complaint or concern.
  • The investigating officer will inform you of the result of the investigation and be open about mistakes that have been made; this is called the ‘duty of candour’.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the service provided by LycaHealth, no matter how small, please follow the steps below:

You may see any member of staff on duty.  Hopefully, this person will be able to deal with and resolve the issue that has arisen or will pass it to the relevant manager for investigation. This is Stage One. 

If a satisfactory solution cannot be reached, please contact the Customer Service Manager by contacting Lycahealth Canary Wharf 0207 132 1440. 

If you feel the issue has not been dealt with in a satisfactory manner, you may ask for the matter to be referred to the second stage of our complaints policy.  Our Senior Management team will oversee a further investigation.

If your care is funded by the NHS, you also have the right to use their complaints procedure to deal with concerns about the healthcare provision they are purchasing on your behalf. 

If you believe someone is at risk from poor care, and you do not feel able to raise the matter in the service, you can contact the NHS Whistleblowing Helpline that is manned  24 hours a day on 08000 724 725
