 The patients were randomly selected but overall the questionnaires returned were fairly representative of the practice profile.

 The patients were of different age groups as below:-

  • Aged 16 to 44 = 20
  • Aged 45-64 = 22
  • Aged 65-74 = 39
  • Aged 75 and over = 18


40% of the returned questionnaires were from male patients and 60% from female patients.


The results: Q2 -Would you recommend your GP Practice to someone who has just moved into the local area?  100% of respondents would recommend the practice

 Question 3 – the comments. The majority of respondents did not add a comment but generally feedback received was positive and encouraging. A few have mentioned the waiting time to see their preferred GP but given that demand far outweighs available appointments it is inevitable to have a waiting time. Patients need to be prepared to see any available GP in an urgent situation and in that instance we would endeavor to offer an appointment within 3 working days.
