As a client of ours, you are entitled to make a complaint to us. The following outlines our policy and procedures for the handling of verbal and written complaints.

Summary:

We want to resolve your complaints as soon as possible. Please contact our office manager via email or telephone using This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 0151 706 7912 and we’ll do our best to fix any problems you may be having with our service, as soon as possible.

Our Responsibilities:

  • To provide an efficient, fair and structured mechanism for handling complaints.
  • To provide our customers with access to the complaints handling process, including those customers with disabilities and special needs.
  • To keep customers informed as to the progress of their complaint and the expected timeframe for resolution.
  • Quarterly to review our complaints so that we can improve our standard of customer service. Handling Your Complaint:
  • Upon receiving a complaint, we will acknowledge your matter via telephone or in writing within 2 working days.
  • If your complaint is urgent, we will make it a priority and attempt to respond within 2 working days. If we cannot, we will explain why and the reasons for taking longer.
  • Our aim is to resolve complaints in a timely manner, and we will generally respond within 21 calendar days.
  • Complex complaints may take longer than 21 calendar days to resolve. In these cases, we will regularly update you on the progress and likely timeframe for resolution.
  • We will advise you of the outcome of your complaint. Where you have requested us to do so, we will advise you in writing.

Step One:

If you have a complaint regarding any aspect of The company, we urge you to telephone our office Manager in the first instance. Our objective is to resolve the vast majority of enquiries or complaints during your first contact with us.

 If you prefer to put your complaint in writing, we will respond to your letter and will confirm any details in writing if you request us to do so.

If you like, you can appoint an authorised representative or an advocate to interact with us on your behalf. When you discuss your complaint with us, we can assist you to clarify and formulate the complaint.

You can also make a complaint by using any of the other contact methods on our website, or please ask us if there is any other method you would like to use to send a complaint to us.

Step Two:

Complaints made to the company are initially overseen by our office manager. After a complaint is made, if it is not immediately resolved, we may need to investigate it. This process may take 15 working days, or longer (in which case we will update you with a reason for the delay and the expected timeframe).

If you are not satisfied with the response tendered to you, you may ask the office manager to escalate your complaint to senior management directly. If so, we will try to make a senior management representative available to address the complaint as soon as possible (depending on availability).

Step Three:

When your complaint is resolved, we will confirm this with you within 10 working days. If your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction by us, and depending on the nature of your complaint, you may refer your complaint to the following outside bodies:

 You may also obtain legal advice from your solicitor as an alternative avenue for resolution.
