Compliments and complaints

We do all we can to get it right first time – but we know sometimes that’s not the case.

If we don’t get things right, we’ll listen and learn to stop it happening again. If you’re unhappy with any of our services then let us know.

Our complaints policy follows the Scottish Public Service Ombudsman complaint handling model.

If your complaint is about one of our care services, you can also complain directly to the Care Inspectorate.

We also want to hear from you if we’ve gone that extra mile to help. Fill in our form to tell us about the great service you've received.
