  • You may nominate a person you want at the service as the key contact regarding this complaint.
  • You will receive acknowledgement within 5 working days of your written complaint being received.
  • We will investigate your complaint and if necessary, will contact you to obtain further information.
  • We will contact you within a month to let you know the progress of our investigation. We will also contact you if the issue requires a longer time to process.

Anonymous complaints

All anonymous complaints will be recorded in the PCCS internal complaints register. However, as we will not be able to contact you to obtain further information to help us with the investigation and assessment of the complaint, our complaint process and possible resolution will be limited.

Confidentiality

PCCS understands that the subject of complaints may be sensitive in nature and we respect your right to confidentiality. If external advice is required in the course of responding to your complaint, it will be sought anonymously or we will contact you to seek your consent. We may need to discuss your complaint with the subject/s of the complaint in order to give them an opportunity to respond to the issue.

Complaints - regarding your Healthcare

PCCS does not have the authority to act on complaints about individual General Practitioners, general practices or other primary healthcare providers.

PCCS encourages consumers with complaints of this nature to take the matter to the General Practitioner or practice concerned, who will assess the complaint via their own established policies and protocols.
