A new survey has suggested more than that 90% of GPs would like to spend more time with their patients per appointment.
The survey of 200 GPs by Aviva UK health found nearly all GPs questioned (97%) said they would like to spend more time with each patient, with 69% stating they would like to see the average appointment increased to 15 minutes, and 24% wanting more than 15 minutes. The current NHS standard requires GP appointment times are kept to 10 minutes, with GPs spending an average of seven minutes per patient.
