GP patients in Oxfordshire have been given a chance to tell the NHS what they think.

The NHS is carrying out its annual GP Patient Survey now, with those selected to take part urged to share their experiences at their practice.

The survey provides NHS bosses with information about where improvements are needed.

The survey invites a sample of people aged 16 and over from more than 7,000 practices across England to take part and can be completed by post or online until the end of March.

Director of commissioning at NHS England for the Thames Valley Olivia Falgayrac-Jones said: “If you get a survey in January, please take part as it provides vital information to help improve local services and inform national decisions.

“It is important for GP practices and for the wider NHS to find out what is working well and also what needs improvement, so that we can ensure that services keep getting better and are meeting the needs of patients across the country."
