GP Patient Survey 2021
NHS England and NHS Improvement together with Ipsos MORI, have today published the latest Official Statistics from the GP Patient Survey. The survey provides information on patients’ overall experience of primary care services and their overall experience of accessing these services.
Data are weighted by age and gender so that results resemble the eligible registered list population of each practice and CCG.
The latest survey consisted of around 2.41 million postal questionnaires sent out to adults registered with GP practices in England from January 2021 to the end of March 2021. Around 850,000 patients completed and returned a questionnaire, resulting in a national response rate of 35.3%.

What is the role of the Patient Participation Group (PPG)?
The PPG are a group of patients who meet, together with health professionals to ensure that patients are given a ‘voice’ within the GP practice. It is the PPG’s responsibility is to ensure that plans, services and activities respond to patient’s priorities and needs. The PPG does not discuss any patient’s personal health details.
