Customer satisfaction is an important step in making sure professional and informative health services are provided to all clients.
Between October and December 2014, we received 710 surveys returned from clients accessing Health Exchange services. This is a significant increase of 35% in the customer satisfaction survey return level compared to the previous quarter. Moreover, it shows that greater emphasis is being placed on our customers’ feedback.
Furthermore, the average Net Promoter Score has been increased to a total of 90%, showing an improvement over the previous 2 quarters’ figures. This result not only shows respondents’ great satisfaction with the Health Exchange services accessed, but also the increased likelihood of former clients recommending our services to their family, friends or even community members. As the latter is concerned, a large amount of the clients who access Health Exchange’s stop smoking services during this quarter noted benefits not only to their closest family members, but also to their communities. This implies that the smoking cessation of the respondents influenced positively all 3 groups – a trend, not typical for all Health Exchange services considering their personal nature.
Moreover, Health Exchange’s score has remained above the 80% threshold since August 2013, showing a consistent service quality has been provided. Many organisations in an array of different sectors consider a score of 30% to be positive.

Consistently with the previous quarter’s result, 90% of the respondents, or 579 clients, rated the staff professionalism as Excellent, with a further 60 (9%) considering it Good.
