RCGP Special Measures Peer Support

The programme is intended to support practices needing to make significant changes to improve their services following inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

How does it work?

Providing a package of expert professional advice, support and peer mentoring from senior GPs, practice managers and nurse practitioners with specialist expertise in quality improvement coordinated by the RCGP. The programme will draw on insight and support from other local practices and professional leaders, including the Local Medical Committee (LMC) and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The RCGP support team will draw up a tailored plan for each practice in the programme. The duration and sequencing will be agreed at the outset, although reasonable efforts will be made to ensure the support adapts to changing circumstances in the practice. The focus is likely to include work to:

Help the practice understand the problems identified by the CQC

Support the practice to develop an improvement plan (or refine their existing plan) to address issues underlying the problems identified by the CQC

Provide direct advice and mentoring to GPs, practice managers and other staff as they work on improvements
