WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
If you contact us and we have been unable to resolve your complaint immediately, the Customer Relations Unit will send you a letter to acknowledge receipt of your complaint. We will consider your comments and may need to contact you for further information. We will try to resolve your concerns straight away and let you know what we are going to do to put things right. Where we need more time, we will investigate and provide you with a written response which is called a “Final Response”. You will also receive a leaflet explaining how you can ask for an independent review of your complaint by the Financial Ombudsman Service. The Final Response should be sent to you within 8 weeks from receipt of your complaint. If we cannot send you a “Final Response” within 8 weeks, we will let you know that we are still investigating and advise you of your referral rights for the Financial Ombudsman Service
