What you can expect from us

We aim to:

  • answer telephone calls within one minute (in office hours)
  • see you within 15 minutes of arriving in reception
  • acknowledge social media messages within ten working days
  • resolve your complaint/request with your first contact – if possible
  • respond to complaints/requests that need investigation within five working days

We can arrange private meetings if necessary.

If we do not meet these standards you can make a complaint online.

What we expect from you

You should:

  • tell us about any changes in your circumstances as soon as possible

We have developed a persistent complainants policy  to deal with people who make unreasonable demands on our services.
