What we do with your feedback
Compliments are passed on to staff – everyone likes compliments!
If a complaint is found to be due to a system or staff problem, our managers take action. If you have requested it and give us your contact details, we get back to you with an outcome.
All feedback is recorded and reported (not your name) at management meetings.
