Wessex LMCs Practice Healthcheck Diagnostic Tool

The Healthcheck Diagnostic Tool has been revised (with thanks to Susie Altmeyer-Ennis for her help), and this now includes PCN roles for practices, and other refinements.

Many practices have found this useful to give a snapshot of where they are now – and may be in 2 & 5 years’ time.

We hope you find the diagnostic tool helpful in assessing your own practice position and please feel free to feedback any comments for improvement to office@wessexlmcs.org.uk

Practice Healthcheck Diagnostic Tool (Revised Jul 2023)

The RCGP endorses the tool and it is used by the Primary Care Development team. NHS England has also published a link to the tool on its own website (with acknowledgment to Wessex LMCs) for use by practices nationally.

If you feel further support is needed for the practice, the following are useful links:
