NHS to Publish list of GP Surgeries

In order to provide more transparency in the system and to give a choice in the hand of the patients to choose their GPs rather than being confined to the nearest one, NHS would be publishing a list of GPs along with their score. These scores would indicate how happy patients are with their GP surgeries. There are more than 8,000 practices in England whose information would be going online.

The marks would be given out of 10, which would reflect how easy it is to get an appointment and how well doctors and nurses explain conditions. This would give an insight to a patient who can decide that which GP is preferable to them. The main aim of this move is to improve the standard of the health services and to give a choice to the patients.

But there is some opposition to this move by a doctor's group which is of the view the scores fail to account for differing challenges faced by surgeries. However, while making this announcement the Health Minister, Lord Howe, said, "Patients will now be able to see exactly what the experience of being a patient at each GP surgery is really like".
