How to choose a GP?

In 2016 CQC thought that the “Days of single-handed GPs are over“.  Well, there seem to be plenty of them still around.  It just shows you that the NHS is very slow to change, and that’s not a good thing.  There is no clear advice on how to choose the best kind of practice, here is the NHS’s advice. It’s very clear on the how, but no information on the criteria for making a choice.  


So here are my criteria:

  • At least 7 GPs
  • Good range of nurse-based services
  • Good rating on GP Patient Survey
  • Additional non-NHS services included or close by
  • Digital services, like appointment booking and prescriptions

It’s as simple as that.   And just incase you want to know what the best looks like, here is an example https://www.bbbc.org.uk/
