Laura DonnellyThe worst GP surgeries have been named after the first spot checks of family doctors in England found that one in three practices was failing to meet basic standards.

Their report concludes that hundreds of patients’ lives are being put at risk by an “unacceptable” variation in quality.
The inspectors also highlighted a worrying lack of competence among GPs, saying that some were simply “not up to it”.
