All Complaints are dealt with based on the date the Complaint was received and will continue through that Complaints Process to its conclusion.
For example, if your Complaint was received on the 25th of July 2022, it would be handled in line with the Complaints Procedures dated 13th March 2022 - 31st July 2022 even if the Complaint didn't conclude until after the 1st of August 2022. This also includes any appeal process.
