Our complaints procedure
How to make a complaint
We always aim to get things right first time and we are committed to ensuring that we achieve the highest level of service for our customers. If you feel this hasn't happened, we would like to hear about it so that we have an opportunity to put things right for you and to improve our service in the future. Your complaint will be reviewed promptly and fairly by an independent party to the complaint itself.
How to contact us
If you wish to raise a complaint you can contact us by telephone, email or in writing. Details can be found in your policy documentation or email us at: email@example.com
