You have been provided with feedback from another service that your organisation has had some “bad press” in the local newspaper. You are a provider of home help services to the elderly and people with a disability. The newspaper article states a couple of your potential clients have been interviewed and report long waiting times for their assessment. In addition, the media report indicates that once they are assessed, the clients are waiting a long time before they receive any service. The term “long time” is not defined but the article includes an interview with an elderly person who needs assistance with shopping and general cleaning.
