The original aim was to inspect providers approximately once every 2 years, until every Provider had been inspected, then revise the interval depending on their rating.
This has not worked out, and there are still hundreds of Providers who have not seen a visit from as far back as 2015.

The regime has become fragmented, with GPs slated to get a visit every 5 years if they have a good rating, but not all other providers are included in this new scheme.
