Skintalks Customer Complaints Procedure

Everyone has the right to expect a positive experience and a good treatment outcome. At Skintalks we take great pride in the delivery of our service and if you are not happy – we would love the chance to rectify the issue causing you dissatisfaction. We promise to listen, treat you with respect and try to deal with your complaint appropriately and in a timely manner.

Our Customer Complaints Procedure has the following goals:

  • To deal with complaints fairly, efficiently and effectively;
  • To ensure that all complaints are handled in a consistent manner throughout;
  • To increase customer satisfaction;
  • To use complaints constructively in the planning and improvement of all services.

Who can complain?

Anyone who is:

  • Receiving a service from the Skintalks
  • Caring for someone who has a complaint
  • Has been refused a service which they think they may need.

How to complain:

Skintalks would like to deal with any complaint as soon as possible.

  • Many complaints can be resolved informally. In the first instance contact Skintalks and, if you feel able, request to speak to the member of staff who carried out your treatment/procedure or ask to speak to their manager, who will try to resolve the matter.
  • If you make contact in person or by phone, make a note of the name of the person you speak to. If a solution is offered at this point, make a note of this as well.
  • If you are not satisfied or do not wish an informal solution, you may pursue a formal complaint.

Write down your complaint using the form provided and send to:

Darryl Collier
Skintalks Medical Aesthetics

Alternatively, you can e-mail it to – darrylcollier@skintalks.co.uk
