Scope Response Customer Satisfaction Survey 2012 Summary
7 September 2012
We welcome your feedback and listen to your comments to ensure that we are constantly improving our service to you. We also report back on what we have done to address any concerns that you may have in our regular customer satisfaction surveys, like the one below:
Paper copies of the survey form were sent to customers whose cases had been closed by Regional Response Workers during the period from June to August 2012. Most of these customer journeys would have started with the Helpline. The survey form was also sent out in information packs from the Helpline. The online survey went live in June and was primarily promoted via email footers.
59 responses were received (paper and online). Responses were anonymous but we did collect and collate demographic data. Some respondents chose not to respond to some questions.
- 89% said the information/advice they received met their needs
- 90% found the information or advice they received useful
- 91% found it easy to understand the information/advice they received.
- 79% said the service fulfilled their expectations
- 94% said their enquiry was responded to within a reasonable and appropriate timescale
- 88% felt valued and listened to by the Scope Response staff who dealt with their enquiry
- 83% would recommend the service to others
We invited the respondents to comment on the service they had received, A selection of these comments and how we will address them is shown below:
