Our Regulators

Our clinics are regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure compliance in England and by the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) in Northern Ireland. Our Pharmacy clinics are registered and audited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).

Feedback and Complaints

We always like to know that our customers have received the best advice and support and have been well cared for by our staff. If you feel your visit to our clinics was a particularly positive experience, we would be delighted to hear from you at feedback@masta.org. However if you are unhappy with our facilities or service we want to know as soon as possible. We will investigate the situation so we can explain, apologise and take positive action where necessary.
