A story of complaint

This story has not been posted but complained of serious professional misconduct again an abortion clinic

Editor's Comment

Thank you for posting your experience which sounded very distressing and has obviously had serious longterm effects on your life and health. Every organisation should have a robust complaints policy in place, and I think it is unacceptable to absolve themselves of responsibility for procedures that take place within their organisation. I would encourage you to make sure you get a satisfactory answer from the Care Quality Commission. There is also a legal advice helpline called Lawline Helpline 0906 598 0373 where you may also be able to get some help on the way forward.
