GP Patient Survey

What is the GP Patient Survey?

The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos on behalf of NHS England.

The survey is sent out annually to over two million people across the UK. The results show how people feel about their GP practice.

What does the survey involve?

The GP Survey is sent via letter or text in early January, those selected will have until the end of March to complete the survey.

The survey has been designed to give patients the opportunity to feed back about their experiences of their GP practice. The survey asks about patient experiences of local GP practice and other local NHS services, and includes questions about their general health.

It includes questions about a range of issues, such as how easy or difficult it is to make an appointment at the practice, satisfaction with opening hours, the quality of care received from GPs and practice nurses, among other things. This survey is an opportunity for patients to have their say about how well their practice is doing at providing these services to patients.

The feedback we receive will be used to see where we may need to improve and will help us to develop our services in the future.

Further information regarding the survey can be found on the GP Patient Survey website. Follow the link below.
