ONLY one Barnsley GP surgery has been ranked as one of the top ten in South Yorkshire.

The 2023 GP Patient survey was published earlier this year, revealing what patients thought of their local GP practice.

The annual survey saw around 760,000 patients complete a questionnaire asking about their experiences with the local GP surgery.

The NHS England figures showed overall satisfaction in GPs across England fell to its lowest level since the survey began in 2018, with 71.3 per cent of patients rating the service as ‘good’ or ‘very good’ in 2023 - down from 72.4 per cent in 2022.

The top ten GP surgeries in South Yorkshire have been ranked, but only one of those is in Barnsley.

Penistone’s Kingswell Surgery ranked in fifth.

Of the 101 patients who responded to the GP survey, 91.7 per cent said their experience at the practice was either good or very good.

This included 67.9 per cent saying the practice was ‘very good’, the highest grade on the survey.
