Public satisfaction with NHS at lowest level ever recorded, poll shows

Senior Political Correspondent

Public satisfaction with the NHS is at the lowest level ever recorded, partly due to the problems in getting a GP appointment and long waits for hospital treatment.

In the latest British Social Attitudes survey of people in England, Wales and Scotland, just 24 per cent said they were satisfied with the NHS in 2023, down five per cent on the year before.

In response, the UK government said it’s increased NHS funding to pay for more doctors and nurses.
