Client Survey

Survey Results 2016

Each year, South Riverdale Community Health Centre conduces a client engagement survey. This is an organized opportunity to gather feedback from clients about their experiences at SRCHC. The survey includes standardized questions that allow us to compare results to other CHCs and report to funders.

Client Survey

This year, we spent three months meeting with clients in groups, in the clinic waiting room, in the main lobby and at off site programs, gathering information.

The staff spent over 70 hours to help 220 individuals complete the questions and document their experiences The results of the survey are reported back to the community, to SRCHC’s Board of Directors and to staff. It helps us as an organization identify opportunities for improvements and celebrate as a community the work of the organization.
