Your opinion matters
At Ignite Healthcare, we’re serious about providing you and your loved ones with the best possible care. Therefore, if you have a concern or a complaint, no matter how minor, it’s vital you let us know without delay. A seemingly trivial concern, if not resolved quickly, may lead to a bigger issue. We don’t want this to happen, and most likely, neither do you.
By understanding your experience of Ignite Healthcare, we’ll gain valuable information to help us improve our services, expand our knowledge and deepen our compassion. As such, we’ll manage your complaint with close attention. We’ll work to resolve the issue quickly and respectfully.
All complaints and incident reports are handled confidentially. Our resolution process for managing complaints is in accordance with NDIS requirements.
If you require support to contact us, please ask a family member, friend or independent advocate to provide feedback to Ignite Healthcare on your behalf.
