Investigating your complaint

We will:

  • assess the seriousness of the complaint
  • decide on the most appropriate response
  • explain to you the different types of investigation/review which can be used to consider your complaint.

Responding to your complaint

We will provide a clear written response to you. We will share with you any improvements we intend to make. The complaints process must be completed within six months of the complaint being received.

If you are not happy with the response, you can ask the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) to review the way we have dealt with your complaint.

Feedback - See, Hear, Act

A high-quality service wants to know what it does well and how it can do better in the future. One way we can find out is to hear the views about the care given to customers. We want you to tell us about your experience and wider observations using our see, hear, act checklists. This feedback will help us recognise good practice and address concerns, resulting in how we can do things better in the future.
