One week left to give us your views on special measures for GP practices

29 Jan 2015 02:39 PM

We'd like to know what you think of our proposals about special measures for GP practices. Our survey closes on Thursday, 5 February.

Earlier this month, we gave an update on our plans for special measures to help bring improvement to GP practices that are providing inadequate care.

Under our latest proposals, when we rate a GP practice inadequate overall it will automatically be placed in special measures. This will give the practice access to a package of support from NHS England. If its rating has not improved within a year, we will cancel its registration. When this happens, NHS England will ensure that patients of the practice will still have access to GP services.

We'd like to hear what you think of our proposals, which you can read about here. You can give us your feedback through our online communities for providers and the public.
