Complaint Letter against Doctors Coming Late to Hospital

Doctors' coming late to hospital is not a new subject of debate. It has been happening for years. However, this is generally seen in government hospitals, and rarely in private hospitals, as their rules are very strict in this matter and penalties are imposed.

You can write a formal letter to the hospital authorities about the matter or you may write an email to them. Please enquiry with the hospital staff if there is any specific procedure to lodge a complaint.

Here is a sample of such a letter to the medical superintendent of a hospital complaining about the doctors coming late to the hospital.


Date: __________

The Superintendent
(Name of the Hospital)

Sub.: Complaint against doctor's duty timings.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am so disappointed and disheartened to bring this to your attention that while the patient's number is growing manifold in our country, the doctors of _________ Hospital fail to abide by the working hours.

On (Date) at around ___ am/pm, I visited the hospital to get my father treated for (Name of the Disease). I was told that the concerned doctor named Mr./Ms. _________ in the ______ Department has not arrived yet. Hence, we had to wait for around ___ hours for him.

Even after his arrival, we had to wait for over an hour in the queue to consult him finally. This has happened to us several times in the past as well. When I confronted him/her about the importance of abiding by duty hours, he/she scolded me harshly in front of everyone.

Therefore, I kindly request your goodself to take strict action against doctors for not obeying the rules set for working hours of the hospital so that the patients can be benefited immensely.
