Complaints

Aronel Cottage operates a “Whistle Blowing Policy”.

Any immediate feedback please speak to the Duty Nurse.

Written complaints should be addressed to Mr. Hitchcock, the home’s Registered Manager.
It is our policy to act upon complaints immediately and give a formal response within 28 days.

In the event that a complaint or request cannot be satisfactorily dealt with in this manner, it may be referred to:

Parliamentary Ombudsman
Millbank Towers
Millbank
London
SW1P 4QP

or ultimately to:

Care Quality Commission
South East Region
City Gate
Gallowgate
Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4PA

We believe Aronel Cottage operates a competitive nursing home fee structure, reviewed annually in April to reflect wage RPI, or upon a request by family to change room to either Council, Standard, Enhanced or Premier.
