CQC inspectors publish reports on 41 more GP practices
The Care Quality Commission has published a further 41 reports on the quality of care provided by GP practices that have been inspected under its new approach.
Following recent inspections by specialist teams, 33 practices have been rated as Good, five have been rated Requires Improvement, and three have been rated Outstanding.
Under CQC’s new programme of inspections, all of England’s GP practices are being given a rating according to whether they are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led.
Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, said:
“We know that the vast majority of England's GPs are providing a service which is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led. If that is what we find on inspection - we give it a rating of Good, and I congratulate the GPs and staff in these practices.
“Patients should be able to expect high quality and consistent care from every GP practice. Where we have required improvement, we will expect the practice to take the necessary steps to address the issue, and we will return at a later date to check that those improvements have been made.
"If we find a practice to be Inadequate, we will normally put it into special measures, to allow the practice to access support available from NHS England and to ensure there is coordinated response to help the practice improve.”
Full reports on all 41 inspections are available on this website.
