Complaints process overview

We will listen carefully and seek to establish all the relevant facts. We may need to ask you for some information in writing.

We will carefully consider the complaint and how you propose we may resolve the matter.  Sometimes we will be able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction quite quickly. On occasion though it may take us a little longer to investigate and respond to you. We will do our best to resolve a complaint within 20 business days. If it will take us longer, we will let you know why and how much more time we need.
