Dear Patient

We are trying to establish an accurate picture of what additional appointments our patients want.

The latest GP survey results reported that 192/354 (54%) patients answered YES to:

'Would you like your surgery to be open at additional times'. From the 192 patients 146 patients answered:

before 8am 14% (20)
at lunchtime14% (21)
after 6.30pm 21% (30)
On a Saturday48% (70)

Over the past 2 years we have had more than 90% attendance in the appointments provided after 6.30pm and we believe this is a service that our patients value.

Please answer the following questions to help us ascertain your needs.
