In around 80% of mediated complaints, the VCMS helps those involved to agree a resolution and bring the complaint to an end (with less than half involving a financial resolution). The service receives over 3,000 referrals a year. Some enquiries are still at an early stage and are supported back to the practice to be resolved locally. Where local resolution is not possible, a VCMS Resolution Manager will work with the client and practice to help find a resolution.
