What is a complaint?
Anyone who feels that they have had a poor service from us, or from someone providing the service for us, and have tried to get the problem solved by speaking to someone in the relevant department. This will affect you and will need a particular response from us.
What happens then?
We will treat your complaint as confidential at all times, and will deal with it in the following way.
Response from us
We will acknowledge your complaint within two working days of receiving it. We will tell you the name of the person who is dealing with your complaint. You will receive a full response within five working days. If this is not possible, we will send you a letter explaining why there is a delay and saying when you will receive a full response.
If your complaint is accepted, the person involved will try to solve the problem by doing the following.
- Apologising to you and explaining what went wrong
- Providing the service you are entitled to receive
- Changing procedures so that the mistake is not repeated
- Asking you to detail any recommendations of areas where we can improve our performance concerning the information, advice and guidance given
