We are committed to using this information to help drive forward improvements. This procedure outlines the aims of the business in dealing with complaints and sets out what a client can expect when making a complaint regarding our services.
Our definition of a complaint

How we aim to deal with your complaint
We aim to give our customer a fair, consistent and structured process to secure a remedy for failures in the delivery of our services.
We will benefit from all complaints made. We will use the outcome of any complaint as a positive method of monitoring performance and improving our services.
We will be monitoring all complaints received and will classify complaints under certain categories such as inadequate service, delays or decision making etc.
