Real-time feedback is a survey that asks service users and their family/whanau about our mental health and addictions services.
There are nine questions asking people to rate their experience so we can understand what we are doing well or what changes are needed if things aren’t working well.
Questions vary from how an individual feels they are respected or involved in their treatment, through to whether they would recommend the service.
Since first introduced the survey has collected close to 400 results; 83 per cent of those surveys were completed by services users and 17 per cent by family/whanau and support people, with users finding the online tablet survey easy to use.
The feedback collected will be used to inform quality improvement.
