Survey sent out to determine public's views on GP service

Fri, 30 Aug 2019

A survey is being sent out to almost 8,500 residents to determine what people think of the GP service on the Island.

The Department of Health and Social Care wants to find out what is working and what needs to be improved.

A GP access survey in 2015 showed 92 per cent of patients were satisfied with the services and health bosses would like to improve on this.

People who receive the document are asked to fill it in and return it by October 25th.

Minister for Health and Social Care David Ashford said: ‘Surveys like this are instrumental in the development of our services. This is a real opportunity for patients to provide feedback on the services they receive from their GP practice and to influence the way they’re provided in future.

‘The data received this year will for the first time, be used to inform the Department’s Health Outcomes Framework, which monitors services on the Island and shapes future development.
