Complaints Policy 2018

Marc Le Galle is committed to providing a high-level service to our customers. If you do not receive satisfaction from us we need to hear from you. This will help us to improve our standards.

Therefore, we aim to ensure that:

  • making a complaint is as easy as possible

  • we treat a complaint as a clear expression of dissatisfaction with our service which calls for an immediate response

  • we deal with it promptly, politely and confidentially

  • we learn from complaints, use them to improve our service, and review annually our complaints policy and procedures.

We recognise that many concerns will be raised informally, and dealt with quickly. Our aims are to:

  • resolve informal concerns quickly

  • keep matters low-key

  • enable mediation between the complainant and the individual to whom the complaint has been referred.

An informal approach is appropriate when it can be achieved. But if concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved informally, then the formal complaints procedure should be followed.

If you have a complaint, please contact Marc Le Galle.
