The survey contacted 2.3 million people to gather information on how patients feel about their local GP and it reveals the best and worst surgeries in Doncaster and beyond.

Across the country, around a third of patients contacted returned the survey and the majority described the overall experience as ‘very good’ (44%) or ‘fairly good’ (38%).
