Customer feedback survey

Based on the circumstances of the enquiry, if an appointment or activity is raised which generates a confirmation email to a customer, there will be an invitation to complete a customer feedback survey.

The process is carried out internally using data capture software and this type of feedback allows us to enhance and develop services based on the general consensus. All customer feedback captured remains anonymous so no personal details are kept.
