Annex A: Per cent positive and negative results

The table below shows which answers were classed as positive, and which were classed as negative. The "Per cent Positive Text" column shows how each question was rewritten for the GP practice report.

Answers such as "neither agree nor disagree" and "fair" were treated as neutral. Other answers such as "can't remember / don't know" and "not relevant" were excluded from the analysis.

The table also shows how many respondents there were nationally, for each of the per cent positive questions.
