To make a complaint in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland
Complaining about NHS services
You have the right to make a complaint about any aspect of NHS care, treatment or service, and this is written into the NHS Constitution on GOV.UK.
There are two ways you can make a complaint about GPs, dentists, opticians or pharmacy services in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland:
- You can complain to the healthcare provider directly. This is the organisation where you received the NHS service, for example a GP surgery or dental surgery.
- You can complain to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board (LLR ICB): this is the organisation that paid for the service or care you received.
You can do this by:
Telephone: 0116 295 7572

Your complaint should be made as soon as possible. This should be within a year of the event or as soon as it came to your attention. You can make a complaint on your own or on behalf of someone else if you have their permission.
Complaining about adult social care services
If you’re unhappy with a social care service, care home or home care and you’re paying for your own care, you may want to speak to the service provider first.
But if you want to make a complaint, the organisations that provide these services will have their own complaints arrangements.
If your care is funded or arranged by your local council, you may wish to raise the issues with the care provider in the first instance.
If you’d prefer not to do that, you can raise your concerns directly with your local council.
