Even before the pandemic, GPs said they were over-stretched and under pressure.
But it appears that the vast majority of us are happy with how our local practice operates, according to the latest GP Patient Survey, produced by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England.
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%).
Not everyone is as happy with their local practice though — 5% said their overall experience was ‘fairly poor’ and 2% described it as ‘very poor’.The survey was carried out before the pandemic, between January and March 2020.
