GP patient survey

The 2022 GP patient experience survey launched this month. Around 2.4 million people over 16 and registered with a GP practice in England are selected at random and invited to take part by letter and text message.

Among other measures the survey is a good way to detect inequalities in the experience of care between different groups, including people with protected characteristics. GP practices have changed their procedures in response to the pandemic so it is a particularly important year for making sure there is clear understanding of the impact of these changes.

More information is on the NHS England website. Data collection for this year’s survey will take three months and results published in July. Results from previous surveys are available. Find out more
