Making a Complaint About RQIA
The effective management of complaints about RQIA's performance is a key component of our quality improvement agenda. The purpose of RQIA's Policy and Procedure on the Management and Handling of Complaints (April 2018) is to provide the mechanism for complaints to be addressed in a timely and effective manner and to provide a framework for us to learn from complaints, in order to improve RQIA as an organisation.
You can access a short guide to this process, by clicking on the image below:
RQIA's Policy and Procedure on the Management and Handling of Complaints advises the complainant how to make a formal complaint about RQIA, and the two stages used to resolve complaints. These are:
- Stage 1 - Local resolution
- Stage 2 - Review by the Stage 2 Complaints Panel
If a complainant remains dissatisfied with the outcome of a Stage 2 review from RQIA, they may wish to refer their complaint to the Northern Ireland Public Services Ombudsman.
