NHS WATCHDOG SURVEY

 

“NHS Patients’ Watchdog launch On-line Survey 

Urgent  appointments with the GP 

 

Patients’ across Wales are being given the opportunity to rate accessing their GP in a National Survey launched by the Community Health Council.

 

The Survey asks how easy it was to obtain an urgent appointment to booking yourself in for a routine appointment with your GP. It also asks Patients’ to indicate how long they waited to be seen once they had an appointment.

 

Community Health Councils (CHCs) across Wales have concerns about GP appointment systems and timely access for patients given that approximately 90% of contacts with the NHS happen in Primary Care.

 

The survey will run for two months and we are urging anyone who has to see their GP to complete the on line survey.
