9 Variation in GP Practice Results

Summary

9.1 This report focuses on the national results of the survey. However, results seen at a national level are not replicated exactly at every practice. Responses to the 'overall' questions relating to access arrangements and care provided by GP practices highlight that there is considerable variation in the results for individual GP practices.

Overall rating of care

9.3 Nationally 87% of patients rated the care provided by their GP practice as good or excellent. There was considerable variation in the equivalent results for individual practices with results ranging from 47% to 100%.

  • At 509 practices, at least 90% of patients rated their overall care as good or excellent. This represents 52% of GP practices.
  • At 135 practices less than 80% of patients rated their overall care as good or excellent. This represents 14% of GP practices.
