CQC inspectors publish reports on 52 more GP practices

The Care Quality Commission has published a further 52 reports on the quality of care provided by GP practices that have been inspected under its new approach.

Following recent inspections by specialist teams, one practice has been rated as Outstanding, 39 have been rated as Good and five have been rated Requires Improvement.

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.”

Notes to editors

Please note that we have published a separate press releases on the practice rated Outstanding. N/A is used when a focused inspection has been carried out. These are smaller in scale than comprehensive inspections, although they follow a similar process. These are carried out to check on specific areas we are concerned about, which might have been raised during a comprehensive inspection or through our monitoring work.

These are among the first GP practices to receive ratings following the introduction of our new inspection regime, which features specialist teams including inspectors, GPs and practice nurses.

To get to the heart of people’s experiences of care, we always ask the following five questions of services:

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

For every NHS GP practice we will look at the quality of care for the following six population groups: Older people, People with long-term conditions, Families, children and young people, Working age people (including those recently retired and students),People whose circumstances may make them vulnerable, People experiencing poor mental health (including people with dementia).
