If you'd like to know more about our complaints procedure click here
Stage One - Customer Call Team
We'll hand your call to our Customer Resolution Manager and your letter or email to a specialist advisor in our Customer Care Team. This person will call you back to discuss the issue and set out how we plan to resolve it. They'll then personally look after your complaint, keeping you fully informed along the way until you're happy that the matter is resolved. We'll then confirm the outcome that we've agreed with you by telephone or in writing, within seven working days.
Stage Two - Escalation to senior manager
In the rare case that you remain unhappy and feel that we haven't resolved the matter to your satisfaction, you can choose to escalate it to an appropriate Senior Manager or Director who will review the case. They'll then write to you explaining the outcome of their review.
If, having fully exhausted this process, we haven't resolved the complaint to your satisfaction, you may take your complaint to the Consumer Council for Water Northern (CCWater) who may act on your behalf to try to resolve your complaint with us. They are an independent body set up to protect your interests and to champion customer issues.
If you’re unhappy with the review from CCWater, you have the right to refer your case to the Water Industry Redress Scheme (WATRS).
