About the survey: Pulse launched this survey of readers on 21 January 2013, collating responses using the SurveyMonkey tool. The 28 questions asked covered a wide range of GP topics, to avoid selection bias on any one issue. The survey was advertised to readers via our website and email newsletters, with a prize draw for a Samsung HD TV as an incentive to complete the survey.

As part of the survey, respondents were asked to specify their job title. A small number of non-GPs were screened out to analyse the results for this question. These questions were answered by 460 GPs.

  • Considering the powers that be had two years to get the payment system in place it is sorely lacking. Our banbk account for BACs payments was deactivated for no good reason......money not paid and was being held until we asked where it was! Their way of reducing the overspend......how cynical but how true!
