GP Practices

We inspect GP practices in Wales to check people are receiving good care.

How we inspect

We look at how GP practices:

Our inspections of GP practices are usually announced. Services receive up to twelve weeks notice of an inspection.

Our inspections are carried out by a HIW inspector, two external reviewers (a GP and Practice Manager who have recent hands on experience of general practice) and a voluntary lay reviewer.

GP Stakeholder Reference Group

Our GP Stakeholder Reference Group provides feedback on our plans to help us make sure that are our inspections are credible and fit for purpose. The group consists of representatives from GPs, nurses, practice managers, health boards, Welsh Government, Public Health Wales and Community Health Councils. 

The following document provides guidance about what we will look at during an inspection. If you would like a copy of our inspection workbook please contact quoting which inspection type of workbook you require.
