You Said, We Did 2015/16

You Said "I don't like the new payment system."

We Did " We had to introduce a new secure system for taking payments to comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) legislation, this means that the advisers are no longer able to take debit/credit card details over the phone."

You Said " Why do I always have to wait so long before my call is answered?"

We Did "We are working closely with IT to develop our telephone system which will enable us to significantly reduce the waiting time"

You Said "I would like to see the CSC complete more enquiries at the first point of contact."

We Did  "Frequent meetings between the CSC and our partners is ongoing which allows scripting and information on the databases to be updated, which allows more enquiries to be dealt with at first point of contact"
