Healthwatch Derbyshire maintains a statutory responsibility to undertake Enter and View visits to a variety of NHS and Social Care adult services which receive any income from public funding.
Discussions were held with managers from Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the Chief Operating Officer of Derby and Derbyshire Local Medical Committee to establish the feasibility of conducting visits to GP practices in Derbyshire.
A framework and tools for the visits were developed and agreed and a programme of visits planned.
The rationale and methodology for the visits were introduced to GP practice managers by the Enter and View Officer at Practice Managers’ Meetings across Derbyshire.
