Complaints Procedure

In person:

Acknowledgement & Investigation

Your complaint will be promptly acknowledged in writing and/or by telephone.

We will generally need some time to investigate the complaint.  The amount of time needed will depend on the number and the availability of people involved, and the complexity, seriousness and/or urgency of the complaint.  We may need to communicate with you during the investigation process to clarify aspects of the complaint.

Response and Communication

We will provide you with a response to the complaint as soon as possible after completing an appropriate investigation.

Whilst we will generally respond to you in writing, sometimes a verbal response is more practical and/or appropriate.
