Primary health services: evidence categories

Page last updated: 22 February 2024


These services include:

  • NHS GP practices
  • NHS 111 services
  • NHS out-of-hours services
  • urgent care services

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

We're listing these primary health 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.
