We received 154 valid responses to our first individual influencer survey. Whilst positive experiences of GP appointments are clear, there are also a number of issues that we believe need addressing.
This is the first Pulse Briefing published. And these briefings will complement our quarterly Pulse Reports when there is a specific topic that we think needs to be explored.
We heard varied perspectives from people who completed this survey. Some of the key findings addressed in the briefing are:
- Booking a GP appointment
- Access to a primary care health professional
- Long phone queues and waiting times for appointments
- Positives of booking online
- Satisfaction with GP appointment
Thank you to everyone who responded to our survey and contributed feedback. Your voices help inform and shape health and social care services in North Yorkshire.
