Customer satisfaction survey
Postponed survey for 2019 / 2020 until September
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve decided to wait until September before we send our next survey to transfusion lab managers. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t get in touch with us before then: we want to hear from you, whether you have a complaint or if you’re impressed because we’ve exceeded your expectations with our service.
Our team of Customer Service Managers are always at the end of a phone, ready to answer any queries or listen to your suggestions, or you can use our form, if you prefer to write.
First survey for 2019 / 20
We sent our survey to transfusion laboratory managers in September last year, asking for their scores and comments on our services including blood supply, delivery services, RCI and how easy we are to do business with.
In response to your scores and comments these are some of things we've done:
We have taken your feedback to the Senior Management Team responsible for each area of service. Our intention is, after the second survey this year, to share with you what actions these teams will be taking. We will be making these clear and transparent. You can rate how successful these actions have been by taking part in the next survey.
We have secured a review of the training given to courier drivers from our logistics partners because your satisfaction score was low. If you consider this has resulted in a better service then please let us know in the following survey.
We have passed your scores and comments onto your Customer Service Manager. They will be in touch to discuss any low scores or adverse comments and work with you to resolve them.
We will monitor how you rate the area of service discussed to see if this has improved, over subsequent surveys.
