How Hartlepool's GP surgeries rate for making an appointment, according to their patients
Patients of GP surgeries were asked a series of questions on behalf of the NHS in March 2018 about how they rated the surgery where they were registered.
One category in the national GP Patient Survey was devoted to the experience of making an appointment. Here is how Hartlepool's GP practices were rated in terms of appointment satisfaction, where a patient is happy with the appointment they were offered, and the overall experience of making an appointment, where patients say the experience of making an appointment is good. The national average for appointment satisfaction is 74 per cent, and 69 per cent for the overall experience of making an appointment.
