Service performance

We want our members to receive a better level of service than they would receive elsewhere. To achieve this, our membership team set stringent performance targets and regularly survey members to see how our service is being received. The feedback we get guides improvements to our service.

Quality of service

When measuring quality, we take into account many factors such as:

  • the politeness and professionalism of our staff
  • the clarity and accuracy of the information we provide
  • the tone of our correspondence
  • the overall time it takes to handle your enquiry
  • being mindful of security when handling your personal data.
