The proportion of respondents to the GP patient survey who described the overall experience of their GP surgery as fairly good or very good

Why this fact is important:

People who use services should experience effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that meets their needs and protects their rights

Things to note:

Value = Numerator divided by denominator. Numerator is total responses who answered "Very good" and "Fairly good" to question 28 "Overall, how would you describe your experience of your GP surgery?". Denominator is total responses to this question. The results of the survey for each GP practice are weighted to adjust the data to account for potential differences between the demographic profile of all eligible patients in a practice and the patients who actually complete a questionnaire. More information about the survey can be found at the GP Patient Survey website: The GP patient survey data is updated on NHS CHOICES annually.
