THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDED TO THE NATIONAL GP PATIENT SURVEY  The National 2012-13 GP Patient Survey results show Kingskerswell and Ipplepen are in the top 1% of GP Practices in England in terms of "patients who would recommend us"; in the top 1% for satisfaction ratings with our opening hours and a staggering 99% of patients surveyed said the time of appointment was convenient for them. The practice is in the top 10% in England as regards the "level of GP care and concern" being "good" or "very good" and in the top 10% in England for those patients saying their "overall experience" was "very good". Compared to other local surgeries our Receptionists were found to be THE most helpful. We scored ABOVE average for ALL questions in the survey compared to local and national averages. These are exceptional results but rest assured we are not complacent and will continue to strive to provide the best NHS GP Service we can for all our patients.
