Customer Satisfaction SurveyRecently consumers have contacted us expressing concern and some confusion after being approached to complete a survey titled 'EnableNSW Survey'. This survey is not distributed or endorsed by EnableNSW. Roy Morgan Research conducted an independent Customer Satisfaction Survey for EnableNSW in 2012. The results of the Roy Morgan Survey can be found here: Customer Satisfaction Survey 2012.
EnableNSW welcomes your feedback at all times.

EnableNSW Prescriber SurveyEnableNSW conducted a survey with prescribers / clinicians in Local Health Districts (LHDs), Government and Non-Government Organisations to determine their experiences, understanding and knowledge of EnableNSW and its processes. It was anticipated that the results of the survey would assist in directing future prescriber engagement strategies and service improvements.
1,089 respondents fully completed the survey representing all LHDs (725); FACS (127); 21 NGOs (147); and private practice (155). Occupational therapists were the most represented profession.
The survey results have provided valuable feedback for EnableNSW to inform the method and topics for prescriber education and training; resource development; and future service improvements.
The prescriber survey results can be found here: Prescriber Survey Report 2013.
