How will we deal with your complaint and how long is this likely to take?
Within five working days of receipt of your complaint we will send you a written acknowledgment which will include the next steps we will take to resolve it. If we are unable to resolve your complaint within two weeks of receipt of your complaint, we will inform you of the causes of delay and indicate by when the investigation is likely to be completed and the complaint resolved. Your complaint will be dealt with confidentially and won't affect how we treat you in the future.
Taking it Further
