To go or not to go: how do you feel about visiting GP surgeries, as lockdown eases?

The Patients Association is currently carrying out a survey to find out how patients feel about visiting GP surgeries as lockdown eases.

They are trying to find out:

  • If patients are concerned about returning to face-to-face appointments with GPs and practice nurses
  • What would improve a patient’s sense of security
  • What measures patients think practices should introduce to ensure their safety

The Patients Association have worked on this survey with Assura, a company that builds and manages GP surgeries and primary care centres. Assura will use the survey’s findings in the design and management of its buildings, and The Patients Association will also share the results with primary care leaders.

Here is the survey if you wish to share with local patients –
