A further 68 reports on the quality of care in general practice have been published by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Steve Field, the chief inspector of general practice, has found another 65 GP practices to be good and three to be outstanding following recent inspections.

One practice, Orchard Surgery in Slough, has been taken out of special measures following improvements in the quality of its services.

In response, Field said: “There is still too much poor care. Since we began inspecting GP practices in October 2014 we have found over 100 practices to be inadequate. While this is a minority, this still amounts to over half a million patients in England who were not receiving the basic standards of care that they should be able to expect from their GP practice.

“I am glad to say that we have increasingly found that most practices that are placed in special measures use the support that is on offer to meet those standards,” he added.

The total number of practices rated outstanding is now 118.
