Dealing with your complaint

When things go wrong we want to know so that we can look into the problem and put it right.

We have a three stage complaint procedure:

We need to get back to you in two working days so that we can resolve the issue quickly.

We need to respond within 10 working days.

At this stage, we need to respond within 15 working days.
