As with any service providing business there will be a balance between customers who are happy with the service the business provides and those who are not. This online course for customer care and handling complaints focuses on how to deal with customers who are not happy with the service. It then details how, by viewing complaints not as something bad but as opportunities to learn, you can turn complaints into a more positive experience.

Why is this online course in Customer Care and Handling Complaints essential?


As a result of the growing online presence of the pharmacy sector, complaints are not always presented in person. They will also find their way to your business via modes of communication such as email, Google My Business, or Facebook, in some cases. This course will help you to maximise the effectiveness of your communication to understand the customer’s perspective, and to respond appropriately.

Moreover, we will show your team how to foster a learning culture wherein blame is removed. This will allow you to shift the focus towards acknowledging errors, so that your team can engage constructively, subsequently learning from them.

The online nature of the course allows you to complete it at your convenience, as well as viewing your team’s overall progress through our online learning portal.
