The vast majority of patients are satisfied with the care they receive at their GP practice, with 54% 'very satisfied' and a further 36% 'fairly satisfied'.
A total of 94% of patients reported having trust and confidence in their GP.
The Ipsos-Mori poll found that 79% of patients said they were able to see a GP fairly quickly.
Ninety-eight per cent of patients said their surgery was clean and 93% said receptionists were helpful.
A total of 88% of patients said their GP spent enough time with them, and of the 63% of patients who had a preferred doctor at their surgery, 73% said they almost always saw that doctor, or did so ‘a lot of the time’.
Opening hours at their practice satisfied 80% of patients, although 53% said they would be keen for the practice to open at additional times.
Earlier this year, a leading academic accused the DoH of hiding high GP satisfaction rates.
