Complaint policy

If you are unhappy with our facilities or service, we want to know about it as soon as possible.

If you are not completely satisfied, you can put your comments in writing. We take all comments and complaints seriously. We always:

  1. Pass on any praise to the people concerned
  2. Handle complaints in complete confidence
  3. Investigate impartially
  4. Offer a clear and complete explanation

Getting back to you

Acknowledgements will be sent within three working days of receiving the complaint. We will then reply in full as promptly as we can – usually within 20 working days. If the investigation is still going on after 20 days we will write to explain the delay. In very complex cases, which may take more time, we will send you regular progress reports. We may suggest meeting you to talk through your issues and attempt to resolve them.
