That’s according to the latest GP Patient Survey, produced by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England.
The survey contacted 2.4 million people from January to April of this year to gather information on how patients feel about their local GP service, and around a third of them responded.
The results reveal the best and worst surgeries in the area.
Across the country, 83 per cent of people described their overall experience as ‘very good’ or ‘fairly good’, slightly higher than last year’s rate of 81.8 per cent.
But two-in-five (42 per cent) admitted to avoiding making an appointment when they had needed one.
The most common reason for this was not wanting to be a burden on the NHS, followed by not wanting to catch Covid.
Here we reveal the GP practices in Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire and Bolsover which were voted the worst by you.
Surgeries are ranked by the proportion of patients who said they were ‘very poor’.
