Our Complaints handling procedure

  1. We always aim to resolve your complaint as soon as possible. We will promptly acknowledge your complaint in writing no later than five working days after receipt.
  2. We will keep you regularly informed of our progress and the measures being taken to resolve your complaint. If for whatever reason we were unable to resolve the complaint within four weeks from the date we received your complaint, we will issue a letter to you explaining why this was not possible, and indicate when we will make further contact. You are welcome to contact us at any time to check the status of our investigation.
  3. If you are not satisfied by our initial response, you can ask us to review your complaint again and advise us of any additional information you believe may be relevant. We will then review your complaint once more and provide you with our final response. This will be issued within four weeks of the date we received your review request.
  4. If, after eight weeks, you are still waiting for us to respond or you are not satisfied with our final response, we will write to you explaining why we have been unable to conclude your complaint and the options available to you.
