Government questionnaire will affect funding for Hackney healthcare services

Hackney GPs are urging residents who have received a government questionnaire about the services they receive from their doctors to fill it in.

The Department of Health’s GP Patient Survey has been posted to over 2.7 million NHS patients across the UK.

The results of the survey can affect the level of funding received for health services in Hackney.

GP and Chair of the Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group, Clare Highton, said: “We want to find out what local people think about the care they receive from GPs, which practices are doing well, and where we can make things better all across Hackney.

“We’ll use the results to improve the way we do things, including how we support people with long term health conditions.”
