The 2023 GP Patient Survey has revealed the best and worst surgeries in St Albans.

The survey asked residents for their views on their doctors' surgeries across a range of different areas.

The number of surveys completed varies from surgery to surgery, and does not represent every patient who is registered at any one centre.

In St Albans, Grange Street Surgery was the best, with a satisfaction rating of 88 per cent, followed by Summerfield Health Centre with 82 per cent, and a host of surgeries in the 70s.

The Maltings Surgery was the lowest rated with 49 per cent.

  1. Grange Street Surgery – 88 per cent
  2. Summerfield Health Centre – 82 per cent
  3. Midway Surgery – 78 per cent
  4. Harvey Group Practice – 75 per cent
  5. Parkbury House Surgery – 72 per cent
  6. The Lodge Surgery – 64 per cent

Responding to the survey findings, Dr Ayan Panja and Dr Helen McAndrew of the Maltings Surgery, issued a joint statement.

They said: “It was disappointing to see the Maltings so low down in the recent GP rankings based on last years surveys. We get great feedback from patients once they have received help from us, but clearly access was an issue.

"Thankfully, after a lot of hard work by the whole team, we have now put that right and our latest Google reviews are testament to this.” 



In Harpenden, every surgery was rated in the 70s, with Elms Medical Practice the best on 78 per cent, while Davenport House Surgery was the worst with 74 per cent.

  1. Elms Medical Practice – 78 per cent
  2. Village Surgery – 77 per cent
  3. Davenport House Surgery – 74 per cent
