Detail

The main results of the latest Survey for 2009/10 Q4 were published on 17th June. 

For the first time, for 2009/10 Quarter 4 (January to March), dental questions were included in the Survey.  About 400,000 adults were asked to complete questions about access to NHS dentistry in the previous 2 years.  Participants in the Survey were asked if they had tried to obtain an appointment with an NHS dentist and if so what was the type of appointment and had they been successful.  Patients who hadn’t tried to obtain an NHS dentist in the previous 2 years were asked to select one reason why they hadn’t tried. 

The results from the survey responses are presented here at national (England), Strategic Health Authority (SHA) and Primary Care Trust (PCT) level.

Further breakdown of these figures can be found in the summary tables, and also a copy of the dental questions used in the Survey.

The Survey’s results can be found on the GP Patient Survey website.
