Monitoring GP practices

  • Public

We are making greater use of intelligence to regulate services.

In our strategy for 2016 to 2021 we made it one of our priorities to make greater use of intelligence in the way we regulate services.

The GP Insight model brings together existing national data on practices in one place, combining quantitative and qualitative data, allowing us to monitor changes in the quality of care outside of our inspections in order to support our decision making and regulatory response.

The data within the Insight reports do not constitute a judgement on performance, but are to inform our inspection teams. Our judgements on quality and safety will continue to come only after inspection and we will not make judgements on data alone.

GP insight is one element of our intelligence-based approach. We continue to liaise closely with NHS England, CCGs and other organisations to understand the local situation each practice operates in.
