Most GP surgeries rated good by CQC

In Latest

The Care Quality Commission has rated 91 per cent of GP surgeries in England as good in the 12 months to July 2018: 5% achieved outstanding, while one per cent were rated as inadequate and four per cent as requiring improvement. Ninety per cent of dental practices inspected in the year to March 31 2018 were deemed to be meeting regulations and providing safe, effective care.

The CQC's annual State of Care report says the quality of the majority of urgent primary care services is good. These include walk-in and urgent care centres, NHS 111, and GP out-of-hours services.

However, the CQC says the public needs a better awareness of the different services available, and the quality of services is not consistent. Access to good care increasingly depends on where in the country you live and the type of support you need. The number of patients waiting to start treatment in hospital 18 weeks after being referred has risen from by 55 per cent between 2011 and 2018, for example.
