A record will be kept of all complaints, investigations and subsequent actions. This will be impartial and accurate.
The COMPLAINTS RECORD FORM – DC01 provides a format for the recording of complaints and subsequent investigations and action, and will be used in all cases. Investigations will be thorough, impartial, and will, where appropriate, take account of all the people involved. Conclusions will never be reached before hearing an independent account from everyone present at any incident.

Where any subsequent action is deemed necessary, the Manager's advice and consent will be given if the complaint involves any member of staff, if the policies of the company are affected, or if a second opinion or advice is required for any other reason.

If the Manager is unable to investigate the complaint, either because of its seriousness or any other reason, then the Responsible Individual will be informed, and he / she will carry out the investigation.

Note: The current regulations require the company to report incidents involving the police to the Commission of Social Care Inspection. If a complaint remains unresolved, then it may be passed on to the Commission of Social Care Inspection, but this will not usually occur until internal procedures have been exhausted without reaching a satisfactory conclusion.

The Commission of Social Care Inspection will follow their own Complaints Procedure.

If a complaint still remains unresolved, then it should be passed on to the Ombudsman, but this should not usually occur until the above mentioned internal and external procedures have been exhausted without reaching a satisfactory conclusion.
