Making a complaint
The Welsh Air Ambulance Charitable Trust is committed to the protection of human life through the provision of air ambulances across Wales.
Our policy is to work to minimise the risk of complaints through the development of comprehensive policies and procedures. However, we value and welcome all types of feedback.
Principles of our complaints procedure We seek to ensure that: • Complaints are dealt with consistently throughout the Charity. • Complaints are listened to and investigated thoroughly. • Complaints are acknowledged speedily and recorded. • Complaints are dealt with in an appropriate, fair and timely manner. • We learn from the complaint.
The complaints procedure You can make a complaint by telephone, letter, email or in person.
