CQC inspectors highlight outstanding and good care as reports are published on 86 more GP practices
This week, CQC has published a further 86 reports on the quality of care provided by GP practices that have been inspected by specialist teams of inspectors.
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.
The Chief Inspector of General Practice has found another 65 GP practices to be Good, three to be Outstanding, eleven to Require Improvement and seven to be Inadequate following recent inspections by the Care Quality Commission. In addition, two GP Out-of-Hours services have been rated Good.
One GP practice had demonstrated sufficient improvements for their overall rating to change from Inadequate to Requires Improvement and therefore exiting special measures.
The total number of practices rated Outstanding is now 114.
