Complaints Procedure

We work hard to ensure you are completely satisfied with the service we offer you at Somerset Osteopathic Clinic. Whilst every effort is made to ensure your treatment resolves the problems you sought help with, this cannot be guaranteed. In the unfortunate event that you are not happy with the service you have received we would ask you follow our complaints procedure (below) in order that we can address your concerns as quickly as possible.

  1. Speak to your Practitioner –  In the first instance please raise your concerns with your practitioner.
