ACCORDING to a survey proceeded in relation to GP services in England, patients in Enfield rank their GPs among the worst in the country.
The survey consisted of 4,786 patients in Enfield and results portray that only 78% rated their GP surgery as either very good or fairly good. Hence, five years ago this result was 82%.
This results that the CCG had crucially dropped under average approval ratings for England in regards to its GPs, along with 3% specifying their personal experience as ‘very poor’.
The results which came from the 2018 GP Patient Survey, proceeded within January and March this year portray that within the country 84% of people perceive that their GP services were good.
Commenting on the results, Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, chairwoman of the Royal College of GPs stated: “GPs and our teams are performing well, in the best interests of patients, in incredibly difficult circumstances.
Our workload Our workload has escalated in recent years, both in volume and complexity, but the share of the NHS budget our service receives is less than it was a decade ago, and GP numbers are falling.
But patients are still waiting too long for a GP appointment, and too many are not getting an appointment when they want one.”
