The changes follow a review of our existing service and a customer consultation, and will make our service more efficient, flexible and reliable.

- We will prioritise the young, the elderly and those with medical conditions if their condition or situation is significantly affected by loss of heating or hot water
- We will provide more training to our colleagues to increase diagnosis over the phone
- We will improve first time fix rates by holding accurate van stock
