HAMPSHIRE GPs are among the best in the country, according to a new survey.

The latest patient satisfaction survey carried out by the Department of Health showed that 88 per cent of patients in the county would recommend their GP to someone moving to the area – above the national average of 83 per cent.

And 90 per rated the way their doctor listened to them as either very good or good, compared to the national average of 88 per cent.

Hampshire GPs also scored highly for patients being able to easily get hold of their surgery on the telephone – 75 per cent found it easy compared to the national average of 69 per cent. And 81 per cent of patients said they could see their GP fairly quickly compared to a national average of 79 per cent.

Debbie Fleming, the chief executive of NHS Hampshire, said ‘We are delighted to have such positive feedback from the GP patient survey and I would like to extend my congratulations to all the Hampshire GP practices whose hard work has contributed to such deserving results.’
