GP surgeries in Thurrock given the lowest approval rating in region by pensioners.

THURROCK pensioners have given Thurrock GP’s the lowest approval rating of all surgeries in the East of England.

A survey by Independent Age, a charity that helps older people, showed that 60% of those surveyed would not recommend their Thurrock surgery.

The survey published the following findings:

Overall experience (good / very good) – 80%

Able to get a same-day appointment – 41%

Confidence and trust in GP (definitely) – 89%

Would recommend their GP surgery (yes) – 40%

Overall experience of out of hours service (very / fairly good) – 76%

YT asked the Thurrock Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for a response. Bizarrely, the spokesperson produced a chart which showed that whilst Thurrock was indeed bottom of the league for the East of England, the CCG with the highest approval rating only scored a 50% approval rating in this category.

YT also requested that a representative come on camera to discuss the matter but this request was declined.
