Read our report about getting an appointment with your GP


It won’t surprise you that one of the top things people contact us about is getting an appointment with their GP. We’ve been to visit three GP surgeries in South Kent Coast who all had a good reputation for managing appointments. Our report ‘All Booked Up?’ details everything we have heard and makes a number of recommendations.

We heard that very few patients were currently booking appointments online but that many of them would be willing to if they knew about it. We also heard that most patients would be willing to see another health professional instead of a GP which would free up GP time for those that really needed it.

Read our report below and tell us about your own experience of seeing a GP.
