General comments .
The results of our most recent survey indicate that patient's, while satisfied with the service we provide, would like to see a greater number of doctors working with our service and a reduction in the time taken to see a doctor. Some commented that our work to provide an ETA, whether via the doctor personally or through our App was beneficial. In response to address the doctor workforce issues, DoctorDoctor is working through its membership of the GP Deputising Association to engage with the Department of Health at a workshop to be held in Canberra in September 2019.
Feedback relating to our customer service has been generally positive in regard to the empathy and understanding shown to patients. However as there were a small number of comments requesting greater empathy and as this is a core value of our business, our Call Centre & Client Services Manager along with the Operations Manager will emphasie the importance of this once again with our staff and doctors. Feedback results have been shared with all of the DoctorDoctor team to instil pride in the good work done and importantly to share feedback on where we need to improve.
