Best way to raise a complaint

Hi , given the continuing lack of on line chat what is the best way to raise a complaint ? 

After many years with PN My mother was due to go into a carehome so I needed to cancel the service agreeing to keep the service live for the whole notice period . Luckily my mothers situation improved which meant she could return home . I rang in to cancel the cancellation before the end of the end of the cancellation period and PN agreed to cancel the cancellation so the line would remain live . 

However PN did cancel the line ! When I rang in to query I was told I would have to register as a new customer and agree an 18 month contract . This I had to do as the line was needed for her medical emergency call device . 

It now means I cannot cancel , should she need to permenantly go into  care , without paying a penalty due to the 18 month contract when it would only have been a single month if the cancelled cancellation was correctly actioned . 


I would like PN to treat me as an existing customer rather than a new one as I did contact them before the service was due to be cancelled . 

any thoughts or help welcome

Hey @Coughandcath,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us here.

I'm really sorry to hear about the erroneous closure of the account you & your mother held with us and I apologise for the frustration and stress this caused you both.

I've investigated both account's and have provided a more detailed response over a complaint support ticket for you here.

 

Thank you.

Hi Madeleine , thank you for sorting this out . The credit offered onto the account very generous . As you have placed a note on the account in regard to the cancellation arrangements the complaint can be considered closed .
