DKMS UK views complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve for the future, as well as a chance to put things right with the person or organisation making the complaint.

The organisation aims to:

✓ Be transparent about its complaints policy and procedure
✓ Ensure the provision of a fair complaints procedure which is clear and easy to use
✓ Ensure complaints that require investigation are investigated fairly and in a timely manner
✓ Ensure all key stakeholders are trained to address complaints received
✓ Gather information to aid the organisation to continually improve.
