The Care Quality Commission has published a further 95 reports on the quality of care provided by GP practices that have been inspected under its new approach.
Following recent inspections by specialist teams, 82 of the practices have been rated as Good, three have been rated as Outstanding, seven have been rated Requires Improvement and three have been rated Inadequate.
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:
“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.
