The 2020 GP Patient Survey
Your views can help improve local GP and health services. Some patients registered at this GP practice will soon be invited to take part in a national survey about their experiences of local NHS services. It covers issues that concern patients, such as access to care and satisfaction with treatment. If you receive a questionnaire, please help NHS England by filling it in as soon as possible. It is really important that we hear your views, even if you have received a questionnaire like this before. Your response will help us to improve GP practices and other local NHS services so they better meet your needs.
The current survey will run until the end of March 2020, visit www.gp-patient.co.uk to find out more.
