To empower people and communities to improve health and social care services together

5 minute appointment times


Here at Healthwatch Sunderland we increasingly hear from patients about the difficulty they have accessing GP appointments.
Over period May 2016 —July 2017 we spoke to 1204 people about local services.  Of these 263 people gave us negative feedback about their GP and 67%  of them complained that they felt they were waiting too long for an appointment to see their GP.
