GP Practices

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

How we inspect

We look at how GP practices:

  • Meet the Quality Standards 2023
  • Meet other professional standards and guidance as applicable
  • We also consider information from self assessment tools such as the Clinical Governance Practice Self Assessment Toolkit (CGPSAT) 

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.
