How we are doing

Our membership department has again achieved the Customer Service Excellence Standard (CSE), a recognised independent benchmark of excellent service.

Also the quality of training for our medico-legal team has been awarded with a Princess Royal Training award.  We are delighted to be the first medical defence organisation to achieve this accolade.

We want our members to receive a better level of service than they would receive elsewhere. To achieve this, our membership team sets stringent performance targets and regularly surveys members to see how our service is being received. The feedback we obtain guides improvements to our service. 

How are we doing infographic

Following the upgrade to our membership system, we continued to work hard during 2016 to ensure members received a good level of service and to enable us to return to consistently delivering high service standards. In the last quarter you will see our speed to answer calls is now back on target.
