We are listening
One issue raised in your responses was the fact that it can be necessary to join a waiting list before accessing therapy or support with us. In recent years, we have undertaken extensive recruitment and growth to counter this, but demand for our services continues to grow.
We are now planning a new innovative approach to provide interim support to children aged five and under on a waiting list. This will allow us to provide strategies and support to assist you until more formal support can be accessed. We will share more details of this initiative with you before long.
Appointment cancellations was another topic that arose in the survey comments. We understand that it can be frustrating when you need to cancel an appointment within the short notice period and still be billed. To try and alleviate this, we have created a new dedicated bookings coordinator role within Early Links to streamline the cancellation process and increase our ability to reschedule appointments where possible.
Thank you for your help
We are truly grateful for all of your responses. As well as providing wonderful recognition for the hard work of our committed team you have also highlighted opportunities to improve how we support you. We will send similar surveys in the future so that your voice continues to be heard. If you can take the time to share your feedback with us, you will be helping us to help you better.
