Your feedback matters to us

At NDCS, we openly welcome feedback, comments, suggestions and complaints. We actively encourage you to contact us with your feedback, whether good or bad. Complaints are especially important to us as they may help us to see where our services, procedures or activities might be improved.

When things go wrong

We recognise that there may be times when our services and activities do not meet our usual high standards.  If this happens, it is important that we know about it as soon as possible, so that we can deal with the situation effectively, try to prevent it from happening again and learn from our mistakes.

Our promise and commitment to you

We promise to take all feedback and complaints seriously, and to deal with them in a timely manner.  A log is kept of all complaints that we receive, and a report prepared for our senior management team on a monthly basis.
