How we work with national partners: GP practices

Page last updated: 12 May 2022
Organisations we regulate

We are part of the Regulation of General Practice Programme Board. This brings together the bodies responsible for the regulation and oversight of general practice in England. As members of this Board, we produced a joint working framework with NHS England and Improvement, supported by NHS Clinical Commissioners, to help our organisations work together more effectively, and reduce duplication and workload for general practice.

We share information about practices and people's experiences of them with some of our national partner organisations. These partnerships help us to be more efficient by reducing duplication and making the best use of shared information and resources. Our inspection teams have an ongoing relationship with organisations including:

  • NHS England and Improvement
  • General Medical Council
  • Nursing and Midwifery Council
  • General Pharmaceutical Council
  • Healthwatch England
  • Medical Royal Colleges
  • Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.
