This is the most recent available Patient Survey.
The information below is taken from the 2012 GP Patient Surveys. People registered at general practices across England were asked how easy or difficult it is for patients to see or speak to a doctor at their practice. The results for this practice are depicted below. More detailed results from the GP Patient Survey 2011/12 are available from the GP Patient Survey website at: www.gp-patient.co.uk.
Things to note
The proportion of people who responded ‘Easy’ or ‘Very easy’ to the question ‘How would you rate the ability to get through to your GP surgery?’ The data are taken from the GP Patient Survey which is sent out twice a year to around 1.36 million adults who are registered with a GP in England. The results of the survey for each GP practice are weighted to adjust the data to account for potential differences between the demographic profile of all eligible patients in a practice and the patients who actually complete a questionnaire. More information about the survey can be found at the GP Patient Survey website: http://www.gp-patient.co.uk/faq/weighting/
When using indicators to make comparisons between General Practices, it is important to consider the context in which GP's provide services. For example the characteristics of the patients treated by a practice – in terms of things like age or deprivation – can affect the value of an indicator, unless these factors are taken into account when the indicator is calculated. Similarly, a practice’s performance on an indicator can sometimes be influenced by other organisations that are caring for the same patients – local hospitals or community services, for example.
