In House Complaints



 

THS acknowledges the right of any person who is dissatisfied with the service to make a complaint.

A complaint can be made verbally or in writing.

The manager will obtain details of the complaint from the complainant. Senior Management will investigate the complaint and where appropriate will liase with other persons involved.

The manager will notify the complainant of the outcome of the investigation and any remedial action to be taken.

Where the complaint is of a serious nature, hostel manager will notify the responsible authority immediately and agree a plan of action.

Where a complaint cannot be resolved, the manager will notify the responsible authority upon completion of the investigation and agree any actions to be taken.

General Complaints

Situations can sometimes arise in everyday living where the ordinary processes for resolving disagreements fail and the individual is left feeling aggrieved. MHTHS will make every attempt to resolve complaints informally. Should we be unable to do so we respect the right of every individual to evoke the complaints procedure at any stage or to use the Local authority statutory complaints procedure.

Our procedures are designed to be easily accessible and ensure the speedy resolution of complaints. We accept complaints made verbally and in writing and to assure the person that their complaint has been heard it will be acted upon where practicable.
