Unhappy with our decision?

If you disagree with a decision we have made about your  complaint, you should discuss the matter with the person who made the  decision. If you remain dissatisfied, you can ask us to review the  decision. A request for a review should be submitted in writing within  three months from the date we advise you of our decision.

The review will be conducted by a senior officer who was  not involved in the original investigation of your complaint. The  review will consider:

  • the process adopted by the investigating officer and  whether it was fair and adequate to address all the complaint issues  you raised
  • the merit of the officer's conclusions and whether they were properly explained to you.
