If you are unhappy with your treatment outcome

Has it been less than 2 weeks since your treatment? 

If YES:

Please check your patient aftercare card (if you have lost it you should be able to download a PDF version from the treatment page). Are you experiencing an Adverse Reaction to your treatment i.e. a reaction that it outside the listed common side effects for that treatment?

If YES - then please call us immediately during opening hours and arrange an emergency review / outside of opening hours please visit your local hospitals A&E and inform us by email - we will follow up as soon as we open.

If NO - then please wait to discuss your concerns with your practitioner at your 2 week review. We need to allow 2 weeks for the full effect of the treatment to be visible and for any bruising, swelling and redness to resolve. Your practitioner can not make a full assessment of the final outcome, or retreat, until these 2 aspects have occurred. 

If NO:

Have you attended your review appointment and discussed your concern with your practitioner?

If NO: Please arrange a review appointment with the practitioner who treated you to discuss your concerns. If your practitioner agrees that your treatment outcome is not close to the agreed expectations at your consultation, then they will discuss with you how the situation can be improved. If they are unable to improve the situation you will be referred to the Clinical Director.

If YES: Please submit your complaint here and our Clinic Manager will be in touch to assist you. If you feel that you would prefer to initially discuss your complaint, in person, with the Clinic Manager - please call 0131 226 9610 and our team will arrange a meeting.

If after following our complaints procedure you are dissatisfied with the conclusion - you may contact Healthcare Improvement Scotland who will review the case.
