CAA Patient Experience Survey

Each year St John NT participates in a national survey through the Council of Ambulance Authorities to gauge our patients’ level of satisfaction with our ambulance service.

The survey provides us with valuable insight into areas of our operations that meet your expectations or may require special attention and/or improvement.

In essence it gives us an indication of how well we are serving and caring for our community in the Northern Territory.
