NHS GP patient survey 2023: Northumberland's GP practice groups ranked according to ease of booking appointments
The 2023 NHS GP patient survey asked patients to rate their experience of booking an appointment, with over 27% of people nationwide having a poor experience.
A separate question asked how easy it was to get through to the surgery on the phone, with more than half of patients (50.2%) describing it as ‘not easy’, a proportion which has more than doubled in 10 years.
“Appointments are already on the rise, and we recently announced £240m of support to practices across the UK to embrace the latest technology, tackle the 8am rush, and make it easier for patients to see their GP.”
Here are the GP practice groups in north and south Northumberland ordered from best to worst experience of booking an appointment.
