Enter and View Reports - GP Practices

Healthwatch Northamptonshire visited 25 GP practices in 2014 and spoke to 234 people. We spoke to the practice managers to find out more about how their practice works, what they thought worked well and their views on the challenges faced.

5 of the 25 practices were also visited by a Deaf ‘mystery shopper’ to assess how accessible they were for Deaf patients.

We published a report of our overall findings in May 2015 and found that whilst many people were happy with the service they received from their GP surgeries, difficulty getting an appointment and not being able to see a doctor of their choice were common issues and the needs of Deaf and hearing impaired people were not being met.

The individual practice reports, including responses from the practices where they were received, are published here.
