Making a complaint
If you have a complaint, please get in touch with your ND Care & Support contact in the first instance so that we can try to resolve your complaint informally. If the complaint is against your contact, or you do not feel comfortable raising it with that person, we can provide you with the contact details of their manager or supervisor.
If we have been unable to resolve your complaint, or you are not satisfied with the outcome, you may wish to raise a formal complaint. If this is the case, please put your complaint in writing to your ND Care contact, and we will then follow the steps below:
ND Care & Support will acknowledge your complaint within 5 working days of receipt.
We will then record your complaint on our central system, and begin investigating your concerns.
We will seek to resolve your complaint as soon as possible and will respond with the outcome of our investigation.
Appealing a complaint decision
If you are not happy with the outcome of your complaint, or a resolution has not been achieved, you are welcome to appeal our decision. Appeals must be sent in writing, or via email, to the Group Chief Operating Officer.
Once the investigation has been completed, we will respond to you in writing with our findings.
