West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) aims to commission high quality services for the patients and public in the region and is responsible for the NHS services provided across the West Norfolk area. Sometimes things go wrong and when they do we want you to tell us about it. We recognise the value that concerns and complaints can provide in planning for the future and in improving services for the benefit of the local community.
West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group is committed to responding to all comments and concerns raised by patients living in the West Norfolk area about the care and support they receive.
The WNCCG Complaints Policy can be found here.
Making a Formal Complaint
The CCG is working with NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group to investigate and record Compliments, Complaints, Comments and Concerns from patients and members of the public. This process allows for an overarching awareness of all local issues and concerns, and for the opportunity of shared learning alongside our colleagues at other Clinical Commissioning Groups in Norfolk.
All comments and concerns (except those regarding Continuing Healthcare) are initially handled by the Complaints team at the NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group. To contact them:

What if I am not satisfied with my response?
You have the right to take your complaint to the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman, if you are not satisfied with the way your complaint has been dealt with by the NHS. The Ombudsman will generally only consider your complaint once you have completed the Trust’s complaints procedure, recognised as “Local Resolution” and received your final response. If the Ombudsman is of the opinion that the CCG can do more to resolve your complaint, they will refer your complaint back to us. It is therefore very important to allow the CCG every opportunity to try to resolve your complaint.
You can contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman at the following address:
