A customer can make a complaint:
There are 2 different categories of complaint:
Stage 1 Complaints
Stage 1 complaints are for issues that are straightforward and easily resolved, requiring little or no investigation.
This is dealt with by ‘on-the-spot’ apologies, explanation, or other action to resolve the complaint quickly within 5 working days or less, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Stage 2 Complaints
Stage 2 complaints are those that are not suitable for frontline resolution and not all complaints can be resolved at that stage. These type of complaints typically require a detailed examination.
These complaints should be resolved within 20 working days.
