Majority of Practices Rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ in Latest CQC Inspections

The most recent round of inspections by the Care Quality Commission has seen the majority of practices rated as either good or outstanding. More than 100 of the 131 practices received positive ratings, with five being classed as outstanding.

This is very positive feedback for practices, with many excelling in the CQC’s key yardsticks for care: safety, effectiveness, being caring, responsiveness, and being well led. Just 18 practices received ratings of ‘require improvement’ or ‘inadequate’.

Professor Steve Field, GP Chief Inspector at the CQC, recently shared his thoughts on the quality of care in general practice: “After reporting on more than 6,000 inspections we have found that most care is good – with over 200 practices now rated outstanding. That means that over a million patients in England currently receive care from practices which we have rated outstanding.

"What’s enormously encouraging is that our inspections are driving improvement – 90% of practices that we have re-inspected have improved since last October. Through their hard work and dedication, practices are making positive changes to the care they deliver."

Many congratulations to the practices rated good or outstanding by the CQC.
