Strategic complaints lead, NHS England

Since working at NHS England, Lee has worked on joint research with the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman on complaints handling; published NHS England's Quality Framework for Complaints Handling; and commissioned toolkits on complaints handling for acute and primary care.

Dr Sally Old
Sally was a consultant clinical oncologist before joining the MDU in 2006. She trained in hospital medicine before specialising in cancer treatment, including radiotherapy. With a main interest in thoracic oncology, including lung cancer and mesothelioma, her clinical role involved producing reports for solicitors and the local Coroners. This sparked her desire to know more about medico-legal medicine. Sally has an LLM in Medical Law and Ethics from the University of Kent. She is a Member of the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine and sits on its Revalidation Committee.
excellent interactive and thought provoking
Wish I had done this many years ago.
In this day and age, doctors concentrate a lot on their procedural clinical work and forget that dealing with complaints is a huge part of good clinical care. This course provides a good insight into achieving satisfied patients and in turn a better nights sleep!
