Purpose of survey
The GP patient survey measured how well GP surgeries were meeting the standards agreed between the department of health (DoH) and the health and social care board (HSCB) on patient access to care, consultations with healthcare professionals, the surgery environment and whether patients were satisfied with the outcome of their treatment.
The results of the survey were used to evaluate practices achievement in the quality and outcomes framework (QOF) patient experience domain. Indicators PE07 and PE08 were designed to ensure people were able to book an appointment as quickly and easily as possible.
The GP patient survey was discontinued from 2011/12 when the indicators were removed from the QOF. Questions on GP consultations are included in the NI health survey.
