GP safety checks and error reporting among main areas of improvement, CQC reveals


This is helpful for practices that haven't been visited yet, good to know what others have tripped up on. Completely agree with the comments on a safety culture - how many prescriptions were issued wrongly last month? What were the causes? How many unhelpful discharge letters were received by practices? Before other comments highlight the very real pressures on primary care, it's perhaps worth reflecting how useful answers to those questions might be to drive system wide improvement (not just in primary care).
