The data was gathered between January and March of this year and patients were asked to rank their doctor’s practice in a variety of different categories.

This included asking them if they felt that their overall experience at their GP’s was good.

The results were then published in July and revealed which GP surgeries patients believe are the best and worst in the city.

It has been designed to give patients the opportunity to feed back about their experiences of their GP practice.

The survey includes questions about a range of issues, such as how easy or difficult it is to make an appointment at your practice, satisfaction with opening hours, the quality of care received from your GP and practice nurses, amongst other things.

The survey is sent out annually in January.
