Dispute resolution process

Nuffield Health has dedicated contact details provided to all suppliers within our Supplier Information Guide. Contact can be made by telephone, email or post. We provide an initial response to all queries, disputes or complaints within 72 hours if submitted by email or post, and where possible, we provide an immediate resolution if contact is made by telephone, although this of course does depend on the complexity of the issue raised.
