Complaints procedure


Peninsula is committed to providing an efficient and reliable service for its clients. In order to achieve this, Peninsula keeps up to date with technology and employs dedicated well trained staff.

On the rare occasions that any part of our service does not meet your expectations, we have implemented a procedure designed to minimise the inconvenience to our clients and to resolve any complaint in a speedy and satisfactory manner. It is the policy of Peninsula that all complaints are taken seriously and are dealt with in a uniform way.

As a Peninsula client, you will receive acknowledgment from the recipient of the complaint within 2 working days. A proposed resolution to the complaint will be issued to our clients within 10 working days (or 20 working days if it’s a particularly complex or technical response). If, for any reason, there is an unavoidable delay in issuing a response to the complaint, the client will be informed and a new deadline issued/agreed.

All complaints will be dealt with by our Client Experience Team and a Resolution Specialist will be allocated on receipt of your complaint. If clients have questions, queries or if they wish to enquire about the progress of a complaint, they can contact their designated Specialist.

The Client Experience Team are available by telephone on 0844 892 2775 during office hours between 9.00am to 5.30pm.

Should any client be dissatisfied with the handling of a complaint at any time, they should initially inform their designated Specialist, who will then escalate the matter appropriately where necessary.

If you remain dissatisfied having followed all the stages of the above, please write to:

Should you have any comments or feedback, we would welcome them. Please send them to the Head of Client Engagement UKI at the address above.
