CUSTOMER SERVICE NETWORK

Customer Service Network (CSN) is a concept of the Road Accident which is aimed at accelerating, inter alia, delivery of the Road Accident Fund mandate through a central coordination of all customer touch-points in all provinces and to create a wider geographical reach and physical presence for our customers.

Currently CSN increased its geographical footprint to a total number to 75 Customer Service Centre's countrywide.


The key focus areas and objectives of the Customer Service Network (CSN) are to:

  • Direct and early involvement in rehabilitation of road accident victims

  • Improving  customers and stakeholders’ perception of the RAF

  • To proactively advise and represent victims of road accidents & service providers to the RAF and to actively engage to assist in the rehabilitation of the patient
