Independent doctors: evidence categories

Page last updated: 22 February 2024


These services include:

  • independent or private clinics
  • independent or private GP practices
  • online primary health care
  • slimming clinics

To assess services we look at evidence against our quality statements. We have grouped the types into 6 evidence categories.

We're listing these independent services together as we’ll aim to collect evidence in similar categories.

We know there are differences in how services operate. We'll reflect this when we look at individual sources of evidence in our assessments.
