We hope, of course, that you are satisfied with our service, but it can occur that you have a complaint.
We would like to ask you to report this complaint to Su-Zi Acupuncture so that together we can look for a solution.
If we fail to come to terms, you can contact the KAB http://www.kab-klachten.nl.
Below you will find the procedure that we are obliged to follow by law since January 2017.
Your acupuncturist is a member of the NVA
This means that you can rely on his / her professionalism. However, a problem can arise in every treatment relationship, for example about communication, treatment, a bill, the treatment or the result. Unfortunately, there are also serious complaints within health care. Think of injuries, intimidation, unwanted acts, violation of your privacy or other matters that concern your personal wellbeing.
According to the Healthcare Quality, Complaints and Disputes Act (Wkkgz), a healthcare provider is the first designated person to make an effort to resolve a conflict with a patient / client. This is subject to a statutory period of a maximum of 6 weeks. The most pleasant thing is for the therapist and the complainant to be able to solve the problem together. If you cannot resolve it together or if communication is no longer possible, the complaints officer can be called in during this first period.
If you have a complaint about a treatment or about your practitioner and you are unable to resolve it together, you can contact the KAB. The complaints officer of the NVA is the person who will contact you. The Complaints Officer can help you formulate your complaint. Sometimes it is enough that you can convey your story and refrain from further action. Sometimes mediation is possible and an appointment is made with you in order to discuss any further actions.
Dispute authority KAB
If it turns out that it is not possible to resolve your dispute with the therapist involved, with the help of the Complaints Officer, the complaints officer will refer you to the Disputes Body for Alternative Alternative Treatment Methods (KAB). This independent committee handles your complaint with the utmost care and confidentiality, under the guidance of a lawyer.
If your therapist works as an employee, any complaints are handled by the employers’ dispute settlement body.
Disciplinary Court and Health Care Inspectorate (IGZ)
If there is clearly a disciplinary complaint, the complaints officer will refer you to the NVA Supervisory Board, the NVA’s disciplinary court. This board, chaired by a lawyer, deals with serious complaints against NVA members and can call in the Healthcare Inspectorate if necessary. In very serious cases, the complaints officer can report directly to the IGZ.
The details of the NVA can be found below. Feel free to contact the secretary if you have any questions. For more information visit: www.acupunctuur.nl
