PATIENTS have had their say on the service they are provided by their GP in a thorough annual assessment.

The GP Patient Survey has revealed how doctor’s surgeries in the Winchester area were rated for 2020.

The survey asked residents for their views on their doctors' surgeries across a range of different areas.

Residents were asked for their opinion on a variety of elements with practices, from booking appointments, waiting times, out-of-hours services and the quality of care given.

The number of surveys completed varies from surgery to surgery and does not represent every patient who is registered at any one centre.

St Paul’s Surgery, in Alison Way, was rated best for ‘overall experience’ of Winchester district patients in the 2020 NHS patient survey.

Of the patients who responded, 93 per cent who responded said their overall experience was good or very good.
