Medifinance Limited approach to handling complaints
A complaint is an opportunity. An opportunity to improve our business, an opportunity to identify where we are going wrong and, most importantly, an opportunity to put things right for our customers where appropriate.
As a business we strive to provide a first class service, but sometimes we don’t get it right and fail to match our own high standards. This is natural for any company – nobody can get it right all of the time. However, what sets us apart from other business is how we react when we get it wrong.
This is why complaints are at the heart of our business. It is why we take them seriously and endeavour to deal with complaints effectively and efficiently.
A complaint is one of the most important communications we receive – it provides us with an insight into how we operate and how we are perceived by the outside world. It tells us where we are going wrong and identifies flaws in our systems and services; how we can improve and, ultimately, how we can offer a better service to our customers. This is why complaints must be encouraged and treated with the respect, care and attention they deserve.
This policy details how we deal with complaints. Please take the time to read it carefully and speak to either your manager or me if you have any questions.
