We cannot deal with the following issues because other organisations are responsible.

How to complain about an Emergency Department or hospital

  • You have the right to make a complaint about any aspect of NHS care, treatment or service, and this is firmly written into the NHS Constitution
  • Complaints about treatment received within the NHS are dealt with firstly by the hospital or other organisation concerned, through the legal system or (in England) by the Health Service Ombudsman.

How to complain about treatment under the Mental Health Act

How to complain about an individual as, or on behalf of a patient

How to complain about the conduct of a member of the College

  • RCEM has a code of conduct for our members which provide a clear set of expectations as to how Members, Fellows and Affiliates should conduct themselves. This code of conduct can be used by a member of the College or member of College staff to raise concerns about the conduct of College members.
