About our new approach to inspecting GP practices

Inspections teams will be larger than before and they will include clinical experts and other professionals.

The results of each inspection will give you a clear picture of the quality of care in the practice – exposing whether it is providing poor or good care.

Our new approach aims to answer five key questions about the GP practice. Is it:

  • safe?
  • effective?
  • caring?
  • responsive to people’s needs?
  • well-led?

Find out more about our new approach by reading 'A fresh start for the regulation and inspection of GP practices and out-of-hours services' below.
