Notify us of the complaint
Whilst we take client complaints very seriously, we cannot deal with them unless we know about them. For your convenience, you can lodge a complaint with us by email or through our website at any time.
We will confirm receipt of your complaint within 48 hours of receiving it. Generally, we will be in a position to deal with the matter immediately. If we are unable to do so immediately, the matter will be referred to a more senior person. It is our intention to deal with all matters of complaint as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Complete complaint documentation
Where the matter cannot be resolved to your satisfaction within 48 hours of you making a complaint, details of it will be recorded in our Complaints Register. If we do not have enough information, we will get it from you. We may ask you to complete a complaint form, which you will find here. Where your complaint is made orally, the staff member will fill out the complaint form on your behalf.
We will notify you in writing to confirm receipt of your complaint within 48 hours of receiving it. We will also notify you of the procedures we will undertake as a result of your complaint.
Your complaint will be investigated. The person with the ultimate responsibility for its investigation is our Complaints Officer who may be contacted using the following contact details:

The matter will be resolved within 14 days of receiving your complaint.
