What to expect next

How long will it take?

We aim to resolve your complaint straight away. However if we've not been able to do so within one week, we'll write to tell you:


  • Why we've not yet resolved your complaint
  • Who is dealing with your complaint
  • When we'll contact you again

We'll usually resolve most complaints within two weeks. If your complaint is particularly complex, it may take longer. We'll contact you regularly until your complaints has been resolved.

What information do we need from you?

To help us investigate and resolve your complaint, please provide the following:


  • Your name and address
  • Your account details and what it relates to
  • When your issue occurred
  • A description of your complaint
  • How you have been affected by this
  • A contact number, email address, and a convenient time to contact you

Why we need this information

This will help us to understand your issue and what has gone wrong, to make sure we can get your complaint to the right person to fully investigate and fix your issues, putting you back in the position you were in before the complaint. Your contact details will help us get in touch if we need to discuss your complaint or require further information. (Please note - our calls may appear as 'private', 'unknown' or 'withheld' on certain handsets)
