GP Patient Survey Dental Statistics

NHS England, together with Ipsos MORI publish Official Statistics from the GP Patient Survey. A sample of around 1.4 million registered patients in England are invited to take part twice a year. Their responses provide timely and valuable information for Primary Care Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) Area Teams (ATs) and GP practices about patients’ experiences when they access local services.

Additional analysis of the dental section is carried out by NHS England, combining questions to get more of an understanding of dental access and behaviours. This additional information, based on people’s reported experience, are used to assess whether Area Teams were meeting the local demand for NHS dentistry.
