Why is this survey taking place?
The GP Patient Survey has been designed to give patients the opportunity to feed back about their experiences of their GP surgery. The survey asks about your experiences of your local GP surgery and other local NHS services, and includes questions about your general health. The survey includes questions about a range of issues, such as how easy or difficult it is to make an appointment at your surgery, satisfaction with opening hours, the quality of care received from your GP and practice nurses, amongst other things.
Replies to the survey will help GP surgeries understand where they can improve. This survey is an opportunity for patients to have their say about how well their surgery is doing at providing these services to patients.
Who is this actually from?
Ipsos MORI, an independent research agency, administers the survey on behalf of NHS England.
