The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England that is responsible for monitoring and inspecting services to ensure they are providing care that is safe, effective, caring, responsive to people’s needs and well-led. This includes all NHS services, hospitals, GP practices, dentists, independent providers, care homes and domiciliary care agencies.

The CQC recently published its report The state of care in general practice 2014 to 2017, which gives findings from their programme of comprehensive inspections of GP practices.
