IDF and NHS Benchmarking Network collaborate on GP Benchmarking initiative for enhanced quality care

Friday 26th January 2024

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the NHS Benchmarking Network to launch the GP Benchmarking campaign, a unique opportunity for our members to measure and improve their care and treatment outcomes.

The campaign aims to support our members in meeting the Regulation 17: Good governance. The regulation covers all of health and social care and therefore, requires GP practices to monitor and evaluate the quality and effectiveness of their services. This initiative will help you to do this by providing you with a Practice Survey and a Patient Survey, as well as a benchmarking report that will compare your results with other similar practices.

The Practice Survey covers three clinical areas: hypertension, hypothyroidism and statins. It asks you to provide information on the prevalence, prescribing and monitoring of these conditions in your practice. You can download the full specification of the questions here and complete the survey offline. All your responses will be kept confidential. You can also watch this Webinar video for more information.

The Patient Survey is designed to capture your patients' views and satisfaction with your practice. It is available as a QR Code that you can easily share with your patients.

The deadline for completing both surveys is 30th April 2024. By taking part in this campaign, you will not only demonstrate your compliance with the CQC regulation, but also gain valuable insights into your practice's performance and areas for improvement.

If you are not a member of IDF and you want to join this campaign, please contact our membership team to find out how to become a member. As a member, you will benefit from access to exclusive resources, events, training and networking opportunities. You will also be part of a community of professionals who share your passion for improving the private healthcare system.

If you have any questions or need any support, please email us at info@idf.co.uk.


Kind regards,

Dr Shaima Villait, GP Committee Chair
