Sometimes we receive complaints about the service we provide. Below is a summary of how we respond to these complaints. 

What you can complain about

You can complain about the service you receive from us, for example, about the way we have handled a complaint, or about the conduct of staff, including the Banking Ombudsman. Please be specific about your service concerns.

We cannot consider a complaint that is simply an expression of dissatisfaction with a complaint outcome.

Decisions are final and this complaint procedure is not an appeal or reconsideration process.


If you have a complaint about the service you received from us, you should raise it within three months of the event giving rise to your complaint.
