We monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.
We set out what good and outstanding care looks like and we make sure services meet fundamental standards below which care must never fall.
When we inspect GP practices, we give them a rating to help you choose care. As well as GPs, we inspect out-of-hours or mobile doctor services, walk-in centres, minor injury units and urgent care centres. You can use our inspection reports and ratings to help you understand the quality of care.
