Disabled people struggling to access GP appointments

According to the latest GP satisfaction survey, 85% of people say they are satisfied with their family doctor and 84% say the same about their local dentist services.

Yet studies conducted by 55 local Healthwatch organisations suggest that there are significant issues of concern for some groups of people, particularly for those with hearing, visual and mobility impairments.

Healthwatch England has compiled the findings into a single report which uses patients’ real life experiences to highlight areas where people want to see improvement.
