The Melton Times can today reveal a list of the area’s best and worst GP surgeries, based on ratings provided by patients.
The information is available on the NHS Choices website, and is based on responses provided in the GP Patient Survey for those surgeries within a eight mile radius of Melton town centre. Patients are asked how likely they are to recommend their practice to others.
The survey is sent out twice a year to about 1.36 million adults who are registered with a GP in England.
Here is the list of the best and worst surgeries in Melton and the surrounding eight-mile area, based on the percentage of people who said they would recommend their GP surgery to others.
