Receipt of your concern will be acknowledged immediately, and within five working days of the concern being raised we will write to you and:

  • Indicate how the matter will be dealt with
  • Give an estimate of how long it will take to provide a final response
  • Tell you whether any initial enquiries have been made
  • Supply you with information on staff support mechanisms
  • Tell you whether further investigations will take place and if not, why not.
