Complaints data

Our complaints volume

In the interest of transparency, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requires all firms receiving 500 or more reportable complaints over a six month period, to publish their complaints figures.

VitalityHealth and VitalityLife treats all customer complaints seriously and works hard to ensure that we learn from them. We strive to understand and address the underlying cause of every complaint in order to improve the overall experience of our customers.
