Contacting Conservators/Board members
If you wish, you can contact your local Conservator who will listen to your concerns and if necessary take the matter forward.
A panel consisting of Conservators, including your local member, if applicable, are available with whom you can informally discuss any issues. If the issue is still
unresolved, the panel will be able to advise the best way to take this forward.
You may ask a question at a Board or Committee meeting. This is a formal process that requires the question to be received in writing at the office by noon, 7 days prior to the meeting of the
Board/Committee. (Each question shall take no more than five minutes, with a maximum of thirty minutes being set aside for all questions).
PROCEDURE FOR DEALING WITH COMPLAINTS
What is a complaint?
"An expression of dissatisfaction made about the standard of service or action of the Board
or a member of its staff which affects an individual or group."
Complaints will generally include the following:-
- failure to provide a service
- failure to achieve standards of service
- failure to follow procedures
- failure to satisfy legal duties
- bias or unfair discrimination
- failure to consider relevant matters
- staff attitudes and the actions of individual members of staff
CONSIDERATION OF COMPLAINTS
If you wish to make a complaint either by phone, 01684 892002, or by personal visit, our office is open between 9am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm weekdays. A member of staff will try to resolve the problem there and then. All written complaints will be acknowledged within five working days. Where research is required a reply will be received within 15 working days.
If you are not satisfied with the reply the complaint should be made in writing stating the reason why you are not satisfied. The Director will review the matter and examine any options which may exist for remedying the complaint. The Director will respond in writing within 15 working days. If a complaint is still not resolved to your satisfaction the matter will be referred to a panel consisting the Chairman, Vice Chairman of the Board and relevant Committee Chairman for their consideration. The Director will arrange for a meeting of the Panel to be convened as soon as possible. The Panel will consider a report from the Director including details of the complaint. You will be invited to attend this meeting to put your case. You will then be informed of the Panel's decision. If you are still not satisfied the matter will be referred to the full Board.
We are pleased to receive compliments as well as complaints as both help us to improve our organisation.
Any Board member who wishes to take up a formal complaint on your behalf should send in written details to the Director at Malvern Hills Conservators, Manor House, Grange Road, Malvern, Worcestershire, WR14 3EY.
