A NATIONAL GP patient survey shows patient satisfaction levels in Cheshire, Warrington and Wirral remain high.

The latest results for the area found 87 per cent said their overall experience of GP services was good and 92 per cent of patients said they were given an appointment at a time that was convenient to them.

The independent survey is sent to over a million people across the UK twice a year.

Glenn Coleman, head of primary care for NHS England (Cheshire, Warrington and Wirral), said: “We would like to thank all our patients who responded to the survey.

“Their answers help us understand what we are doing right and where improvements can be made.

“We are delighted that 87 per cent of patients said their overall experience was good which is thanks to the hard work and dedication of staff working in GP services.”
