Training and Teaching

You may be aware that most of the GPs at Danes Camp & Rillwood Medical Practice Partnership have significant experience as GP trainers providing education and clinical supervision for Medical Students and GP Registrars at Danes Camp Medical Centre.

In engaging the same GP trainers it is anticipated that Rillwood Medical Centre will also become a training practice for Medical Students and Registrars from as early as the end of April 2021.

Our qualified GP trainers will be actively involved in mentoring and supervising each clinical consultation. You will be informed if a student or registrar will be taking a role in your consultation (telephone or face-to-face) and your consent will be sought prior to them consulting with you. They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and professional conduct as all of our regularly employed clinicians.

Who is this actually from?

Ipsos MORI, an independent survey agency, is administering the survey on behalf of NHS England.

What is NHS England?

NHS England is an arm's length body of the Department of Health with the main aim of improving the health outcomes for people in England. It has commissioned Ipsos MORI to run the GP Patient Survey. You can find out more about NHS England on its website.

When is the survey sent out?

The survey is sent out annually in January.

What is Ipsos MORI?

Ipsos MORI is a registered and independent survey organisation and strictly adheres to the Market Research Society's ethical code of conduct. Ipsos UK and MORI, who you may have heard of separately, merged in October 2005 to form the second largest research organisation in the UK. Ipsos MORI was awarded the new international process Standard ISO 20252 and the International Standard for Information Security ISO 27001 by the accredited assessment body Marketing Quality Assurance (MQA), the first survey agency in the world to achieve both of these standards. For more information about Ipsos MORI please go to


Frequency of data collection:

Data will be collected in a single annual wave of fieldwork  (from January to March) with publication each July. The sample size of each data publication will remain the same, meaning that we will continue to hear from the same number of  patients each year (c.850,000). This decision has been taken to reduce the overall cost of the survey in light of the budgetary challenges faced by the NHS.


Questionnaire content:

As set out in the GP Forward View, the delivery of primary care in England is going change significantly over the next five years. The questionnaire content will therefore be amended to ensure that the data collected reflect patient experiences of the new primary care system.


To inform this process, NHS England will be consulting with a wide range users of the survey,  including commissioners, GPs and patients, in advance of the next wave of fieldwork.

The King’s Fund Report on the Crisis Facing Family Doctors and Their Services

General practice is in crisis. Workload has increased substantially in recent years and has not been matched by growth in either funding or in workforce. Practices are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain GPs. There are challenges too with recruitment and retention of other members of the primary care team particularly practice nurses and practice managers.


As the pressures on general practice have grown, the experience for patients has deteriorated, albeit from high levels.


The King’s Fund report looks at the systemic causes of the pressures in General Practice, patient perceptions, and some ways in which the health and care system could be improved.
