The Committee is represented by senior members of staff other than the person making the original determination.
Once all relevant information has been received the Committee must consider the complaint within 28 days. If we are unable to provide a final response within 28 days we will advise you of the delay and reason, and request an extension no longer than 45 days from receiving the initial complaint.
To have your complaint reviewed by the Committee, your complaint must be in writing addressed to:
