If you would like to send us an email you can do this by sending your email to groupcomplaintsteam@pmas.co.uk

Whatever way you choose to contact us, if you are letting us know about something that is making you unhappy we will give you a response as soon as possible, ideally when you first talk to us. If we can't give you an answer straightaway, we'll look into the issues raised and once we've fully investigated what has happened, we'll write to you or call you. We will try to be as quick as possible and will keep you updated with what's happening.

We are committed to handling all complaints fairly and will always do our best to provide a full response to your concerns. If you feel there is more we can do, please let us know as we don't want to make our members unhappy and will work with you to try and sort things out.

If you aren't satisfied with our final response, or we haven’t issued our “final response” to you within eight (8) weeks from the date you raised your complaint, you can contact the Financial Ombudsman Service (excluding Healthcare Scheme complaints – see below). If you want them to look into your complaint, you must ask them to do so within 6 months from the date of our final response. The Financial Ombudsman Service may only consider your complaint once you’ve tried to resolve it with us, so please take up your concerns with us first and we’ll do all we can to help.

Healthcare Scheme Complaints

If you feel your complaint has not been treated fairly and you would like an independent review of the outcome provided by us, then we’ll be able to arrange an adjudication via the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR).

Please note that our Healthcare scheme is not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and therefore is not covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service.

CEDR is an independent company who offer structured negotiation, assisted by a trained mediator. Whilst they cannot enforce a course of action, they will review the facts of the case and your concerns and attempt to mediate a solution that is satisfactory to all parties. There is no cost to you for using this service.

For further details about this service please email, groupcomplaintsteam@pmas.co.uk

Online Dispute Resolution

You can also register a complaint with the European Union’s Online Dispute Resolution platform (or ODR). Their website is http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. The ODR will simply pass your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (or CEDR for Healthcare).
