During 2017 WellHandled is running a season of complaint handling masterclasses.

Caring About Complaints - 2017 Session 1 - 15th June, Edinburgh

Supporting staff to provide effective responsesThis Masterclass is designed to bring together senior complaint and patient experience staff to promote critical thinking and develop their knowledge of best practice. This has been prompted by revision of the NHS Complaints Procedure in Scotland and implementation of the Duty of Candour but also in recognition of the challenges that remain with developing a positive culture for dealing with patient feedback.

Based on current learning opportunities, WellHandled will take a fresh look at putting all of this into practice. We use real life examples that demonstrate the impact of benchmarking and early warning systems. 

The masterclass offers a reflective environment in which experiences can be shared and solutions explored.

We provide attendees valuable and constructive ideas to take away.

The day will include detailed case studies, interactive workshops and creative conversations with the aim of providing a new perspective and collective support. It will also provide some practical advice for you and your organisation and tools to develop behavioural standards for practice.

This will help to create a positive culture leading to improvement of the patient experience.
