  • 96% said staff were knowledgeable, with no one saying the staff they spoke to had poor knowledge
  • 95% reported that we kept them up-to-date with progress on their case either very or fairly well, again there were no reports from people who felt they hadn’t been kept up-to-date.
  • 96% felt that we listened to what they had to say very or fairly well, no one thought we didn’t listen to them
  • 96% told us they had been treated fairly, nobody felt they had been treated unfairly
