Care Quality Commission
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They carry out reviews of services and currently produce a rating of many different aspects of NHS organisations. These ratings are broad in nature and you may or may not find that they are an accurate reflection of the local services that you use. They are due to begin registering GPs in the future.
