Making a Complaint

During any point in the process when lodging a complaint or appeal, you have the right to access an independent advocate to assist with exercising your choice and control, and to ensure your voice is being heard during this process.

Complaints are investigated and actioned by a Team Leader or Manager who has not had any involvement in the matter to ensure a fair investigation.

We will attempt to resolve your complaint within three working days.

Where a complaint has not been resolved within three working days the matter will be escalated internally as it may require a more detailed investigation. You will be notified if the matter is escalated.

We will aim to resolve an escalated complaint within 18 working days however depending on the nature of the issue there may be times where a resolution period is extended.

You will receive notification once an outcome has been reached. Please be aware due to privacy we may not be able to disclose information regarding the investigation and actions.
