The latest GP Patient Survey, produced by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England contacted 2.3 million people to gather information on how patients feel about their local GP and it reveals the best and worst surgeries in Northamptonshire and beyond.

Across the country, around a third of patients contacted returned the survey and the majority described the overall experience as ‘very good’ (44 percent) or ‘fairly good’ (38 percent). Here are the 10 best surgeries.

However, not everyone is as happy with their local practice — five percent said their overall experience was ‘fairly poor’ and two percent described it as ‘very poor’. The survey was carried out before the pandemic, between January and March 2020.
