Your feedback

At the London Clinic we are committed to providing the highest quality care and an exceptional patient experience.


Concerns, comments and complaints

We understand the value of the feedback that our patients and visitors share with us about their experience of our services. This means that our staff want to know as soon as possible if you have any concerns about your care, or the care of a loved one. Sharing your concerns with a staff member is often the quickest way of ensuring we can resolve the matter for you. We act on all feedback and it is used to improve the services we offer, meaning you can be assured that raising concerns with us will not affect the care you receive.


If your experience at the hospital wasn’t as expected, we want to know what we could have done differently. You may have some suggestions or ideas you want to share with us, or a compliment about the care you received. We welcome all feedback that helps us to improve our services and provide the highest standards of care and treatment.
