It covered a wide range of issues including access and waiting times, communication with patients, patients' views of GPs' knowledge, out-of-hours care, courtesy and the availability and helpfulness of other surgery staff and services including practice nurses and receptionists. This press release confirms the headline results released in April 1998 and gives some more detailed findings.
