Rise in GP satisfaction levels according to latest National Survey results
People in Wales are more satisfied with the quality of GP care and education, but are increasingly concerned about climate change, according to the latest results from the National Survey published yesterday.
The National Survey for Wales is a face-to-face survey of 12,000 people across Wales. The study gathers information on many topics including health, schools, sports, art and culture. The 2018-19 survey also included a number of new questions on environmental issues and the Welsh language.
Results are used by the Welsh Government and other organisations across Wales to help inform decision and policy making to make Wales a better place to live.
Key results from the National Survey in 2018-19 include:
- 83% of people in Wales are highly or very highly satisfied with their lives
- 93% of people surveyed are satisfied with their GP care (+7% from last year) and 93% (+3%) are satisfied with the care they received at their last NHS hospital appointment
- 93% of people think the world’s climate is changing. Of these, 37% were very concerned.
- 90% of parents are satisfied with their child’s primary school and 81% with their child’s secondary school
- 43% of Welsh speakers learned Welsh at school
- 84% are satisfied with their local green space
- 80% are satisfied with their local authority recycling service
- 74% of people reuse their own carrier bags for food shopping most of the time
Welcoming the results, the Minister for Finance and Trefnydd, Rebecca Evans yesterday said;
The National Survey is a valuable resource as it provides an overview of how people in Wales feel about many aspects of their lives.
This year, we introduced new questions which focused on the environment. It is clear from the results that our world-leading sustainable development and environmental legislation is having a positive impact. We must now build on this momentum as we step up our efforts to tackle the climate emergency.
