In the first audit cycle (2014-15), data to answer 29 queries were extracted from GP systems. Feedback from stakeholders and learning from that work resulted in a reduction (via clinical and stakeholder consensus) to 14 queries for this extraction, with an increased focus on queries that directly relate to opportunities for improving quality.1 We have also specifically focused (in section 5) on diagnostic and care issues through a lens of equity and parity, and we would recommend further analysis at a local level where disparities are identified.
