Inspections of GP out-of-hours services start this month

England's chief inspector of general practice, Professor Steve Field, is inviting people in England to tell him and his inspectors what they think of their GP out-of-hours services.

Inspections have already started and all GP providers of NHS out-of-hours services will be inspected by June 2014.

The new inspection teams will be led by expert inspectors with clinical input led by GPs. The teams will include an inspector, a GP, a nurse or a practice manager and a trainee GP.
