Survey feedback: Follow the link to view Comments shared on ngpsTALK.

All comments are included verbatim with the following exceptions:

  • As the purpose of the survey was to collect cost/benefit data, repetitive answers have been noted but are not all included in the document as it would be unwieldy. Preference has been given to ensuring the bulk of comments against change are included even if there is some repetition.

  • Comments which are not relevant to the current discussion because they cover other topics have
    been noted but are not included in the release document. Thank you to all those who took the
    opportunity to thank our staff for their contributions to our community.

  • Comments have been edited to remove any specific identifying information of the contributor.
