All issues MUST be logged via the IT Helpdesk
with the first line support team. Your issue will then be dealt with by a member of the support team. Issues will be escalated internally if they cannot be resolved by the first line support team/ second line support team and so on. To enable us to offer an efficient and effective service, it is imperative that these steps are followed.

    There are a number of ways to log an issue:
