Tameside Adult Services is committed to providing quality services. We need to hear from you if you have any complaints, suggestions or compliments about the service you receive.
We use this valuable information to help us improve the services we provide for you. We take all complaints seriously and deal with them as quickly as possible.
Anyone who receives a service from Adult Services can make a complaint, suggestion or compliment about that service. Also, anyone who has been refused services can complain about that refusal. Your carer, friend or relative can make a complaint, suggestion or compliment on your behalf.
You can complain about any part of the service you are unhappy about. This may include the quality or the level of service you receive. The complaint must be made within 12 months of the event you are complaining about.
We find that the manager responsible for the services you receive can sort out most complaints. This manager will look into the circumstances of your complaint and aim to respond to you within ten working days. This response will outline what action will be taken as a result of your complaint. All your complaints, suggestions and compliments will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. In some cases, it may take longer, but we will keep you informed.
If for any reason you are unhappy with the response from the manager, you should contact the Complaints Manager. You should contact the Complaints Manager within 20 working days of receiving that response.
