GP Patient Survey

The GP Patient Survey assesses patients’ experience of healthcare services provided by GP practices, including experience of access, making appointments, the quality of care received from healthcare professionals, patient health, and experience of NHS services when their GP practice was closed. The survey also includes a number of questions assessing patients’ experience of NHS dental services.

The results of the survey are published by Ipsos on behalf of NHS England on the GP Patient Survey website.

An interactive Primary Care Network Power BI tool will also be available, presenting the latest results and trends for all survey questions. The tool also shows the latest 2023 results for the GP practices that are a member of the PCN. There are a variety of options to export the results for use in reports and other documents.

There are 6 comparable years of data for most of the GP Patient Survey questions (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023). There are a small number of questions that can be compared back to 2012 as they were not affected by survey changes from 2018 onwards.

Changes to the 2023 survey

Minor changes were made to the questionnaire in 2023 to ensure that it continued to reflect how primary care services are delivered and how patients experience them.
