Dr Brian Dunn, Northern Ireland GPC chairman, said: ‘It is very pleasing and encouraging to see that our patients value their local general practice so highly.

‘In the past the majority of patients would have had to travel often long distances to a hospital setting for the treatment they now receive in general practice. This is of particular importance to older patients and those who are chronically ill. It means they don’t have the stress of a journey added to their problems and are more confident with the continuity of care which is unique to general practice.’
