We hope our residents are satisfied with the quality of care and other services they receive but recognise that they or their relatives may wish to raise a concern or make a complaint.
We encourage residents, their relatives and staff members to raise any concerns initially with the Registered Manager. If this does not lead to an immediate resolution of the problem the complaints procedure, which is displayed in the entrance hall at Sibbertoft Manor, will be carefully followed. All complaints will be acknowledged within 24 hours and fully resolved within in 14 days. The Care Quality Commission will always be kept fully informed throughout.
