  • Concerns: we cannot deal with individual complaints about health/social care practitioners. In the first instance, you may be better contacting their employer and/or the regulator or accredited register they are registered with. But you can share your feedback with us about your experience of a regulator or accredited register by using our Share your experience function or you can also email concerns@professionalstandards.org.uk

Dealing with concerns or complaints

We hope that any interactions you have with us are helpful, but if you do want to complain about us, you can find out more here. We cannot deal with complaints about individual health or social care practitioners. If you cannot raise a concern directly with their employer, the clinic, hospital or trust where they work, you can contact their regulator or the Accredited Register directly. We have more information about how to do this here.
