How long do you have to wait to see your GP?

People often tell me they have to wait ages to see a GP, and I have been shocked to hear stories about people queuing outside their surgery to get an appointment. This is simply not good enough.

I know many practices have made huge efforts to improve their services and I have benefited from this myself. More money is being invested in the NHS and surgeries are coming up with creative ways to ensure people receive the right health care – whether that is a physio, pharmacist, or nurse – when they need it.

Each surgery is different and everyone has different needs. For example, if you have a long term or complex medical condition, then you want to see the same GP each time. But if you have a less serious condition you might be able to see a nurse instead. That’s why I’ve launched this survey to find out more about your experiences at your local surgery. Please take the time to visit my website and tell me your views so I can help improve healthcare in our area.
