What do we want to know?
We want to know:
- How do you book appointments with your GP, for example, by phone, in person, online, by App or email?
- Were you offered a face-to-face appointment with your GP or an alternative option?
- Was the referral to the other health professional or service appropriate for you?
Why are we asking?
Concern about access to GP services continues to be one of the most common themes people raise with us. There is also a wealth of national and local evidence highlighting the challenges people face when booking a GP appointment, including a lack of face-to-face appointments, the use of digital technology and remote appointments, and waiting times.

Your feedback will make a difference
Good access to GP services is an important measure of the quality of care being provided locally. Your feedback will help us identify the strengths and weaknesses in the current GP booking processes. We will share our findings with those responsible for GP services in Somerset to help them improve access to GP care.
