If you are unhappy about any aspect of our service, please get in touch with the person you have been dealing with at the CSP. This will give them a chance to hear what has happened and have a chance to resolve it for you immediately.
The Enquiries Team (ET) can also help you contact CSP staff members should you need to refer back to someone about your complaint. Contact the ET by phone on (+44) (0)20 7306 6666 or via email and tell us more.
Should neither of these routes prove satisfactory, you also have the option of making a formal complaint.
