01905 45 45 50 | Worcester WR2 4QW

In January 2018 we sent out a survey. Thank you to all of those who replied, the results were very interesting. They provided a good insight into whether you were pleased with our service and what you wanted from us in future.

Thank you to those of you who left additional comments, we received some very nice messages. We don’t know who left those comments, of course, because we made the survey confidential.  So, if you would like a reply to any comments you left please do get in touch by email info@countyosteopaths.co.uk or phone: 01905 45 45 50.

Here are the results or our survey:

We are very pleased to do better than the “benchmark” for this question. In other words, we had more satisfied customers and fewer dissatisfied customers than the average business.

It was a pleasant surprise to see just how many people were recommended to us, as opposed to those who found us on the internet or by driving past.


Q3) How easy was it to book an appointment?

Answers:   very easy 83%         neither easy not difficult 10%             slightly difficult 7%

The easiest way to make an appointment is by ringing our Reception line on 01905 45 45 50. There’s always somebody there to answer your call between 8am and 6pm on weekdays (excluding bank holidays). I’m afraid we can’t promise such a quick response if you email us or text us as these messages are replied to by our Osteopaths during breaks, which can be unpredictable.


Q4) Would you find it useful if we sent you a reminder before your appointment?


yes, please: by text 72%

yes, please: by email 5%

no reminder, thank you 23%

From May 2018 we will be asking you, when you next come in, to tick a box to say whether you want to receive reminders.


Q5) How likely are you to recommend us to somebody else?



Percentage of total %

Number of people out of 80 replies Expected results according to survey Benchmark %
Very likely



44 %




23 %

Probably not



32 %

Once again, whilst not perfect, we were very pleased that we did better than the average business (i.e. the Benchmark) on this score.

Please, if there is ever any experience you have with us that you are not happy with do tell us. We can’t improve if you don’t tell us when we do something wrong. You could email or phone in. If you wish to remain anonymous you could post a letter to us or ring our Receptionist in confidence. Although we could do more to resolve any issues if we knew all the facts. Please find all our contact details here.


Q6 What resources, if any, would you like to help you to recommend us?

“Recommend a friend card”, with discount for giver and receiver            51%

Fridge magnet                      14%
