NHS patients 'to see GP ratings'
BBC News website

"The Freedom of Information Act, which was introduced in 2000, gives people the right to see some information held by public authorities, which relate to how they deal with the public, from 2005. It also requires public authorities, which include local health providers like primary care trusts (PCTs), to start putting plans in place to publish this information. In this instance, it means PCTs must publish the results of the scores awarded to GPs for the management of chronic diseases"
