GP patient survey: the hardest doctors’ surgeries to book an appointment in South Tyneside in 2021
These are the doctors’ surgeries in South Tyneside which are the hardest to book an appointment at according to the latest GP Patient Survey, produced by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England.
Patients’ satisfaction with booking a GP appointment is on the rise, despite a public row brewing over whether doctors are seeing enough people face-to-face.
The majority of patients (71%) had a good experience booking an appointment, according to the latest GP Patient Survey, produced by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England.
This is up from 65% in the 2020 survey.
The patient survey contacted 2.4 million people from January to April of this year to gather information on how patients feel about their local GP service, and around a third of them responded.
Here we reveal the GP practices in the South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group area which were voted the hardest to make an appointment at.
Surgeries are ranked by the proportion of patients who said their experience of booking an appointment was ‘very poor’.
