I am aware how frustrating it can be to have difficulties accessing GP’s and long waiting times so we have to remain vigilant but this is a very strong base from which to build further success.’
The Survey for 2014-15 shows that 91% of people in Wales were satisfied with the care they received from their GPs and 92% with the care they received at their last appointment at a NHS hospital.
The National Survey for Wales, which began in 2012, is based on face-to-face interviews with more than 14,000 people across Wales each year. The survey collects robust, detailed information on the views and experiences of people in Wales on a wide range of subjects.
Other key results from the National Survey 2014-15 include:
• 96% of hospital patients felt treated with dignity and respect;
• 90% were satisfied with the overall service they received from the emergency ambulance service, and 79% with the time they had to wait for the ambulance to arrive;
The survey for 2014-15 reveals people’s views on the NHS and education, where zero is ‘extremely bad’ and ten is ‘extremely good’. The overall rating for the NHS was 6.3
