NHS GP practice patient survey

NHS GP practice patient survey

Posted: Wed, 16 Jun 2021 17:34 by Parish Council

Clinical Commissiong Groups (CCGs) for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland have launched a GP practice survey exploring views and experiences of GP-led (primary care) services during the Covid-19 pandemic to help build on the things that people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland like about the service and to identify areas of care that could be improved.

Over the last year, Coronavirus has placed enormous strain on all areas of the NHS, including General Practice. Despite that, General Practices have remained 'open' providing more than 6 million appointments over the last 12 months, with the majority still providing face-to-face. Some changes have been made to keep both patients and staff safe though, including increased use of both telephone assessment and, in some cases, online consultation where appropriate. Right now, GPs and GP practices are handling more appointments than ever before. More »

The CCGs would love to hear your opinion and about your experiences that will help them to plan for service delivery in the future. Even if you haven't visited your General Practice recently it's still really important that they hear from you so that they can understand the way care needs to be provided to you in the future. The gathered feedback will inform a series of discussions going forward to help create a shared vision for modern, sustainable primary care.

The survey closes on Monday 12th July 2021 and can be accessed on the following link: www.bit.ly/PrimaryCareLLR » Less
