Compliments, Comments and Complaints

Getting your feedback is very important to us, whether it's a  general comment or observation about a service we provide, a compliment about something we've done well or a complaint about something you're not happy with.

We are committed to listening to your feedback and acting on what we hear.

We will use your views to look at our services and see how we can continue to build on the good aspects and how we can improve those you feel are not as good as they could be.

What can be complained about?
The standard of fluency in customer-facing roles, in accordance with the legislation on the Requirement for Public Sector Workers to be fluent in English. Accent, dialect, manner or tone of communication, origin or nationality would not be considered legitimate as a complaint about the fluency duty.
