COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

Stage 1

In the first instance, if you are unable to resolve the issue informally, you should write to the member of staff who dealt with you, or their manager, so that he or she has a chance to put things right. In your letter you should set out the details of your complaint, the consequences for you as a result, and the remedy you are seeking.

You can expect your complaint to be acknowledged within 4 working days of receipt. You should get a response and an explanation within 14 working days. If you are unsure which member of staff to write to, your complaint should be sent to the Office Manager.

Stage 2

If you are not satisfied with the initial response to the complaint, then you can write to and ask for your complaint and the response to be reviewed. You can expect acknowledgement to your request within 4 working days of receipt and a response within 14 workings days.
