Watford Observer: 'Postcode lottery' affects pensioners’ view of NHS care 'Postcode lottery' affects pensioners’ view of NHS care

Pensioners’ satisfaction with NHS care continues to be determined by where they live, new research of Britain’s retirees’ shows.

Happiness with levels of NHS care varies by as much as 20% between some regions – with the gap widest between over 65s in Wales and the West Midlands.

The Stannah Silver Census questioned 1,000 adults over 65, to provide a finger on the pulse of an often overlooked segment of British society.

Overall 81 per cent of pensioners said they are “happy with the quality of care I receive from the NHS” and 86 per cent agree the “NHS is a great institution and I am proud of it”.
