PATIENTS in Huddersfield are happy with the services they get from their local doctors.
More than nine out of 10 said they had confidence and trust in their GP.
But a survey out today revealed that when it comes to dental care, only 78% were happy with the care they received.
The figures are part of a nationwide study of more than 117,000 patients.
The poll of patients across England by the Healthcare Commission found most people were happy with the care they received from local doctors and dentists - but 30% said they could not book an appointment to see their GP three or more working days in advance.
Patients have complained that Government targets stating they should wait no more than 48 hours to see a GP or 24 hours to see a primary care professional has led to surgeries stopping advance bookings.
Instead patients are told to call back nearer the time they want to be seen.
The picture is much brighter in Huddersfield.
In the areas run by the South Huddersfield Primary Care Trust, 86% waited less than two days for an appointment. For Huddersfield Central Primary Care Trust, the figure was slightly less, at 79%.
The trusts are responsible for services such as GPs, district nursing, health visiting and school nursing.
The survey showed 94% of patients felt doctors treated them with dignity and respect, while 83% were given detailed information about new medication.
In dental care, the proportions of patients with trust in their dentist were 78% in South Huddersfield and 76% in Huddersfield Central.
Kevin Holder, chief executive of the trusts, said: "We are very pleased with the result of the patient surveys. They confirm that services within primary care in Huddersfield are still improving and compare very well to other areas of the country.
"We value having feedback from our patients in this way and we are currently developing an action plan to tackle the areas where we need to improve.
"We will continue to involve and work with the local communities that we serve to make sure we are meeting their needs in the best way possible."
