Survey on choice of outpatient appointment

NHS England and Monitor have published the results of an annual online survey about choice of outpatient appointment, which is a legal right for patients.

This year’s survey interviewed 6,989 adults in England of which 2,729 had been referred for an outpatient appointment by their GP within the last year. It shows that 40% of patients were offered a choice of hospital or clinic for their first outpatient appointment, an increase of 2% from last year.
