The latest GP Patient Survey (GPPS), which seeks the views of over two and a half million people every year about their experience of GP services and NHS dentistry, is published today.
The data included in this publication was collected in two waves during July to September 2014 and January to March 2015.
Dr. David Geddes, Head of Primary Care Commissioning for NHS England, said: “The GP Patient Survey provides invaluable feedback and insight on the services we provide. It is encouraging to see the vast majority of patients rate their experience of general practice as good but there are also areas where we can focus efforts to improve services across the country.
“We are working on ambitious plans, set out in the Five Year Forward View, to strengthen primary care including £350 million of investment in new schemes to improve access to general practice and improve premises and technology. We are also working with Health Education, The Royal College of General Practitioners and the British Medical Association’s GP Committee, to expand the primary care workforce and further benefit patients.”
