Q4 2017

Complaints reporting in Quarter 4 of 2017.

A quick summary 

The number of complaints has increased by 4,233 from 156,736 in quarter 3 of 2017 to 160,969 in quarter 4. This is 43,697 complaints higher than in the same quarter of 2016 when we received 117,272 complaints.

Long call waits were still causing higher volumes of complaints in quarter 4. We continued to work on service stabilisation and this resulted in wait times improving across the quarter to within 2 minutes in December. We expect to see this will feed through to a reduced number of complaints on this topic in Q1 2018.

Complaints we were able to fix before the end of the next working day and within eight weeks

The percentage of complaints resolved by the end of the next working day has slightly decreased since last quarter from 70.88% to 69.17%. There has however been a slight increase in the percentage of complaints we resolve within 8 weeks against the last quarter from  93.43% to 93.74%. We’re committed to do whatever we can to resolve complaints as quickly as possible. We aim to make sure that we fully fix the issue once and for all, to prevent our customers having to complain about the same problem again.
