The process will be as follows:-


•Within five working days of receiving your complaint we will contact you either by telephone or in writing to acknowledge our complaint, providing you with the name of the person dealing with the matter for you.


•We will then investigate the complaint, keeping you regularly updated on the progress we are making.


•Within two weeks of receipt of the complaint we will either:


a)Send you a final response which addresses all the issues of the complaint.


b) Provide a further update on the progress of your complaint.


•Within four weeks of receiving the complaint we are committed to offering you a final resolution. Where redress of the complaint is required we will provide you with fair compensation for any acts or omissions for which we are responsible and will comply with any offer you accept. However this may not always involve financial compensation.


•We will regard any complaint closed if we do not receive a reply to our final response within eight weeks.
